HS Golf??? I need some help from pros.?
no 4 months isnt. a year minimum. ask ur uncle for some of his old clubs to use or go on craigslist and buy some used ones or go to a used golf shop and buy some decent clubs. just because u get this stuff doesnt mean u will make it. a lot of golfers either have a god given talent or they stink so be ready to accept the latter.
Have you ever been to a family reunion or do you avoid them?
I love my family reunions! I come from a large Irish family and every Christmas we rent a lovely Victorian clubhouse on a local golf green for the "McGeary Family Christmas". And in summer we have the "McGeary Family Picnic". More people attend the Christmas event as some are on vacation during the summer months. My grandparents raised 7 kids in a small 4 room house and as our families grew we'd have to visit at Christmas in shifts. Eventually we rented halls for the gathering, but have now been at the same pretty location for the last 5. Grandpa died in the 1970s and grandma passed 4 yrs ago, but we keep up the tradition. It's important to us. When I was a small girl the picnics were on the 4th of July. We'd be at the park by 10 am and wouldn't leave till after the fireworks. It was awesome. My grandparents had 7 children, 24 grandchildren, 17 and counting great grandchildren!
