Actually, this post would be the exact opposite of a slice.
Last night, Tuesday the 30th, the last night of Men’s League for the summer, Josh hit a hole in one! (On #2 at Rocky Knolls.)
Thankfully, one of his partners snagged his phone and snapped a few photos.
Also thankfully – it was the last night and not everyone was there. (There are about 60 teams of 2 for men’s night. 120 people.) Did you know, traditionally, when you sink a hole in one you must buy a round of drinks…FOR THE ENTIRE GOLF COURSE?!?!? That’s nuts. But it’s an old European tradition I guess (even the Golf Nut can’t find a definitive answer). (And hello. Everything about golf is a bit nuts.) So yeah. Thankfully not everyone was there. And not everyone opted for a drink. The tab only came to about $80-something. Still. Don’t you think you ought to win something instead?
Very happy for the hubby. It’s an awesome achievement, especially for someone as nuts about golf as he is. I’m also very glad to have the photos. Honey? I apologize for thinking you were totally full of crap and pulling my leg when you texted me.
I think the famous Mr. Anonymous probably said it best when it comes to Josh and golf: “Born to golf, forced to work.” Arnold Palmer more eloquently summed up my husband’s attitude:
“What other people may find in poetry or art museums, I find in the flight of a good drive.” ~Arnold Palmer
For the record, I am a horrible golfer made worse by lack of practice. I haven’t been golfing since I was pregnant with the Girl. I keep meaning to get back out there, but the time never seems to come. So here are two quotes about the game for me:
They call it golf because all of the other four-letter words were taken. ~Raymond Floyd
When I die, bury me on the golf course so my husband will visit. ~Author Unknown
(And hey – all this talk of golf reminds me. I haven’t posted the annual Calcutta photos. Coming soon! I mean, it was only a month ago. *sigh*)
