Ken and I have on the Buick Invitational while he does some work, and I just got done reading the Sunday paper. This is Tiger Woods' first tournament of the year, and he is crazy good. How amazing to come out of the off season and play this well...we just watched Tiger hit out of a wet rough and get within a couple of feet of the hole. Unbelievable. After watching that shot, I realized that I had been standing there with my mouth hanging open for about 10 seconds! He is just so good, and such a competitor. He's amazing to watch.
I'm looking forward to practicing my golf swing this summer. This is the year I will really work on it and practice, and we'll actually play a round! I never thought in a million years that I would like golf, but Ken loves it and has gotten me into it. I was hooked the first time I went with Ken to a golf course. It happened to be in Florida, when we were staying at our timeshare in New Smyrna Beach. I got to drive the cart--always fun!--but I just loved the peace and quiet of the course. We saw birds like blue herons and hawks, and the course was so pretty, with trails going through stands of palmettos and lush forested areas. I thought, "Yeah...I could do this!" I'm sure I'll be terrible at it, but I'm looking forward to trying it, and trying to get better at it!
Of course, I also like to wear my golf gear, like a skort with a polo shirt, and either a baseball cap or a straw hat. I remember telling my friend Jim about how I "looked all golfy and junk." Ha!
