Golf Pro

When the kids went to visit my parents last summer, my dad took Eli golfing...the whole experience with the golf cart and everything. Unfortunately it was a crowded day, and Eli may have felt a little overwhelmed. Not that you'd know it from talking to him; he has been asking to go again all year. So when Grandpa Jim booked his tickets for Ruby's birthday, Eli's first request was another day of golfing. As luck would have it, a friend of mine just handed down a great set of smaller clubs for Eli.
The two of them opted to tackle 18 holes and, as luck would have it, the day was slated to have some dicey weather, so the course was pretty empty. This allowed for Eli and Grandpa to enjoy golf at their own pace. However, Eli started the morning with chipping a ball in on the first hole. Not too shabby, especially for an 8-year-old rookie!
