On and Off the Course: Golf is for Mother’s, too


I also request for Mother’s Day that my younger son James play with us. He hasn’t been struck with a love for the game yet, so it’s more of a battle to get him to play with us.

Recently, though, James has been to the driving range a few times and has even played nine holes twice. He has discovered that since he has grown and gotten stronger, he can hit the ball a long way. He is looking forward to our Mother’s Day round, and even thinks he can be competitive with me. If he keeps up that attitude, I’m going to play him for a weeks’ worth of laundry or doing the dishes.

Andy and Phillip know better than to bet me for anything. I tend to get rather competitive, and worse still, lucky. The number of times I have mis-hit a shot, yet it ended up a foot from the pin or even in the hole is staggering. If they didn’t love me so much they would hate me.
