In the morning on Friday, I attended my last group golfing class held at the Carlton Oaks Country Club. My instructor, Louise Parks, has mentioned several times to the class that it generally takes over three years to get the basics of golf down. This includes learning the rules, putting, chipping, pitching, fairway and T-shots as well as just plain getting the ball to go where you want it to go.
Three years from now I will be 80 years old. Might be that I may never get the game of golf under my belt.
Around noon, my friend John and I drove to the National City Golf Course and played nine holes. I was pretty tired by the time we got to the 9th hole at National. My golf class which included one hour on the driving range had taken a lot of my energy.
