Golfing after a 30-year hiatus

Golf in Austin

Golf in Austin

This weekend delivered more sunshine-filled days in Austin, which allowed me to accomplish a long-time personal goal of mine: I played a round of golf for the first time in more than 30 years. My husband, young daughter and I grabbed our clubs (yes, I have clubs) and hit the links. Here’s the TOP 10 LESSONS I learned after an afternoon of golfing with my family:

  1. My seven-year-old gives really good golf instructions. (“Mommy, glue down your feet so they don’t move!”)
  2. I have the potential to be a good putter.
  3. My seven-year-old child is a better golfer than I am.
  4. Golf is humbling.
  5. My husband is amazingly patient.
  6. I am not patient.
  7. I really need to apologize to all the worms I possibly beheaded while trying to get the ball from the tee-box to the green.
  8. I need cute golf clothes.
  9. I’m not good at doing things I’m not good at doing.
  10. My daughter and I can have an impromptu dance party anywhere we are!
