FORE….My first game!

After just 5 lessons my husband, Matt was gracious and brave enough to take me to play my first game of golf on July 4th.

We decided to just play a scramble to allow me to get a feel for the flow of a real game.  For the benefit of those who do not know, in a scramble, each player tees off on each hole. The best of the tee shots is selected and all players play their second shots from that spot. The best of the second shots is determined, then all play their third shots from that spot, and so on until the ball is holed.

We figured this was the best way to go so I wouldn’t be holding up a long line of golfers coming up behind us.  We played the first 9 holes this way but a couple of things led my husband to say that we should keep a true score on the back nine.  Those two things being the course was not busy and I shot par on the 6th hole!

During the course of our game I realized I left my pitching wedge behind at a previous hole.  After discovering my error, I made Matt drive back to try to find it.  We only had to drive back one hole.  Upon seeing us approach, a player from the group behind us started walking to their cart and grabbed my wedge.  It was a funny drive by as we retrieved my club and explained I was “new”.

Another thing I kept leaving behind were tees.  I cannot tell you how many times my husband had to say “grab your tee”.

I was not looking forward to my first time on the course because I thought I would be so embarrassed.   I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised with my playing and I had an absolutely wonderful time.  I won’t get all mushy on you but my husband, who plays every week, was wonderfully supportive and patient.  I loved hearing him say “nice ball”.  It was much better than “grab your tee”!

Now for the shocker, I shot a 53 on that back nine, which was way better than I thought I would do.  I cannot wait to get out there again!

To all customers of AG Wilson Building Solutions, I may be taking you golfing earlier than I thought!

Happy Golfing.
