I Don’t Play Golf For $$$ But It Sure Boosts The Ego When I Win

I play golf with the women’s league at my local golf course once a week, and in the last three years I’ve been playing I’ve been on a second or third place team once in a long while. But I’ve never won top dog until now!!!

Played pretty well yesterday morning, and as we were playing a game called Individual Quota my good play landed me at the top of the list. At last!!!! This game format favors those with high handicaps and that’s me!

The $$$’s not much, – but worth a dinner out, or a good book at amazon.com… but I am very proud!!!

Not to mention the fact that i totally tumbled into a sand bunker on the 17th. I mean, totally. I had hit the golf ball into the trap and it was hanging on by a dirty thread on the edge of the bunker. The only way to play the ball was to stand on the top edge of the bunker and reach out with my club to try and whack the ball… that’s where I was when the ground under me gave way, dumping me club and all upside down into the pit below. No harm, no foul. I was out of the hole with just a little humiliation. But imagine how well I would have done if I had only just hit the $#@%! thing.

Now I know that those of you plugging away in a classroom, or in an office will give me grief for the time I spend on the golf course… but it’s part of my work… for golfgurls.com the website I’ve created for women golfers. So I too am working hard as I stroll down the fairways and putt along those lovely greens. I know—you secretly hate me. Right?

In the trap, outta the trap…
All of it can give you a real bad rap.
But keep the faith
And take a swing
And the next time… the prize money… may include BLING!
