Watch Laura Daniels “Golf” [VIDEO]
I use the term loosely, because I'm not sure that's what you'd actually call it.
I'm not good AT ALL, but since I'm now 42, I feel like it's a bit of a rite of passage into things you start to do during the summer rather than bake in the sun and drink all day. Not that I'm not still a fan of what my younger-self indulged in (there's always time for drinks and sun in my book!) but picking up my clubs for the first time in 3 years just felt right.
So when we had a nice warm evening last week, my BF, Mark, and I went to Shawnee Country Club to play a few holes before it got dark.
Again, I'm not good. I've never taken lessons (as you'll see by my swing below), I use my mom's old clubs, I wear a glove that's 2 sizes too big, and I don't have golf shoes. I DID, however, have a "golf shirt"...so I felt official. (BTW, I'm a Foundation board member for Community Services for the Developmentally Disabled, and our golf tournament is coming soon! Will give you details soon!)
So...do you have a good swing? Can you give me pointers? And where's your favorite place to golf in WNY? (I've got a nasty habit of taking a Par 3 and making it a Par 8, so please, be gentle...)
