MY LATEST IMAGES & STORIES

Fore!

Chris just recently got back into playing golf (he used to play when he was younger), so it was the perfect time for me to cross off go to a driving range on my bucket list. My mom used to play, and her dad was an avid golfer in his days, so I figure I must have some amount of aptitude for the sport, right?

Last weekend we visited Dulles Golf Center & Sports Park, where Chris taught me the basics on grip, stance, and swing. I was surprised at how much is involved, and I’m not sure why I didn’t realize it’s such a difficult sport. I had fun though! My nine iron connected with the ball over half the time and a few times I even sent the ball straight, so that seems like a good start. My arms are still a little sore though, I think from the many times I accidentally whacked the club into the ground. We’ll definitely go to the driving range again, and I’m also planning to take a lesson or two. I see what a tremendous amount of practice it takes to become good enough to play, and I think I’d like to attempt a real game someday (a long time from now).01_driving_range_blog02_driving_range_blog03_driving_range_blog
