After discovering competitive golf, it was my mission to lower my scores. I knew that I needed to work on my short game accomplish that mission. I read a couple books and watched many videos over the years but never really practiced to get better. It was time to work hard so I started grinding on my lunch break and it made all the difference.
As I mentioned in my last post in this section, I was introduced to golf at an early age but I wasn't hooked on golf until much later. I have been around it all my life but I really didn't even have my own clubs until I graduated high school. I played baseball growing up and my dad didn't want me to mess up my baseball swing. I watched golf with my dad and hit the driving range with friends but that was really it. It wasn't until I started college that I started to actually play the game.
As many a golfer before me I was introduced to the game of golf by my father. He used to bring my brother and I to ride along with him during his matches. As I look back I realize he brought us along because my stepmom had plans but back then I was just happy to be hanging out with my dad. Because of these fond memories I started bringing my daughter as soon as she was old enough to pass as a 6 year old. It was quite a long time ago but certain things stick out.
