So today I awoke very early to meet Jamie Lofgren on the greens. A beautiful day on the links, no no I’m not talking about Link from The Legend of Zelda but the golf course of course, a horse is a horse, the famous Mr. Ed.
Let me tell you about the clubs that I use, the drivers I use I think they are circa 1942, passed down to me by my grandfather, and the other 3 (yes my whole golf bag consists of only 6 count them 6 clubs) were bought at a church garage sale. A 4 iron, a pitching wedge and a putter.
Jamie and I got paired up with these older gentlemen in their mid to late 60′s or early 70′s. At one point they looked at me and asked me what I was hitting (golf lingo for ‘what kind of clubs are those’) and I told them and they looked at them and said “Oh, you’re hitting Mc Gregor’s” as if it was some throwback to their youth. But my clubs are made entirely of wood instead of the current titanium or aluminum. My sweet spot is denoted by 4 screws in the head of the driver.
But the best part of the day is when the older gentlemen complimented me on my swing and told me if I could hit the ball as well as I had with my piece of poo clubs then I’d surely improve if I got some proper clubs. All in all a great way to start my day, which lasted through work that got done at 11 pm. Off to bed now since I have to be at work at 7am.
PS I got sunburned some (oddly the kind that is red but doesn’t hurt) from being in the sun for 4+ hours. And I got coon eyes from the sunglasses I was wearing too.
Enjoy your day.
