Hey all, I just wanted to take a moment to share something that I was really proud of after years of working on this God-forsaken game :P

This year, my handicap went from 17 to 12. My pro said I went from obvious SGI level to being between blades and GI. Plus, I won my first tournament (with my team) when I sunk a 45 footer downhill, left to right on the 18th green with everyone watching to break the tie on our final hole!

Most importantly, my oldest son at 12 has decided he wants to be my playing partner anytime he can, and we have such a good time. Golf is helping him learn life, and it's an honor to watch.

I'd largely been subject to golf's punishments and to have the team celebrating like that has made this year pretty special. Many terrible rounds lay ahead as we all know, but I thought i'd share some victories for those of you who might need it. Hope is out there lol.

This game is spectacular.

It really is special. He finally connected on a drive and "holy s***" slipped out lol... I told him in case like this (away from his mom) it's 100% all good :P

Wow, that's fantastic! Blades.........  :)

Disclaimer*

I'm a handicap golfer in my 50's. Any opinions I have about golf equipment or professional golfers or the game in general should be taken as seriously as you would the opinions of a random guy in the fourball ahead of you who just shot 92 but is usually better than that.

Small thread hijack here but only because we are talking about our wonderful sons.

Today my son is interviewing with the firm I spent 30 years with and recently retired from. Im probably more nervous than he is but so danged proud of him.

In the old days I could simply tell someone in HR to make it happen. The firm has gotten so large that these days hes just another candidate.

Please send him some positive vibes! The power of manifestation🙏

It must have felt like a cattle prod hit you (in a good way) when that 45 footer dropped.  Well done!!!

Enjoy that time with your son. There is something special about sharing an athletic bond with a parent. My dad and I shared a similar bond over tennis, practicing, traveling to all my junior tournaments, and him coming to many of my college events and matches. Unfortunately, my father passed away too young and quite suddenly. I know several people that suffered similar tragedies, and it really messed them up because they wish they had spent more time or had a better relationship with their fathers. Although my Dad never got to meet my wife and daughter, it helps a lot knowing all the times we spent together, and that there wasn't anything unresolved or unsaid in our relationship even though his passing was unexpected.

You never know how much time you'll be given together, so make the most of it!

Love it! I don't think there's much of a chance for our kids to take it up, at 28 and 30 and shown no interest in my new hobby, but I'm hoping that future grand kids will be influenced by this set of grandparents to swing the club. Although on the other hand, since I took it up at 58 a couple of years ago, who knows?

That's a great description. The other team was waiting for us on the 18th green, even down to when we hit our approach shots. I put a 6-iron on to dance floor, but after stroking the putt time kind of slowed down and I just remember thinking "that's on line".

When it vanished all I remember are team mates on my back and fist bumps. Also a distinctive "F*** YOU" from a guy on the other team lol

I had to take my Dad off life support on Father's Day 2010. He built my interest in golf, but never let me play with him because of numerous (complicated) reasons. I'm working to see that it's different with my sons.

Hey all, I just wanted to take a moment to share something that I was really proud of after years of working on this God-forsaken game :P

This year, my handicap went from 17 to 12. My pro said I went from obvious SGI level to being between blades and GI. Plus, I won my first tournament (with my team) when I sunk a 45 footer downhill, left to right on the 18th green with everyone watching to break the tie on our final hole!

Most importantly, my oldest son at 12 has decided he wants to be my playing partner anytime he can, and we have such a good time. Golf is helping him learn life, and it's an honor to watch.

I'd largely been subject to golf's punishments and to have the team celebrating like that has made this year pretty special. Many terrible rounds lay ahead as we all know, but I thought i'd share some victories for those of you who might need it. Hope is out there lol.

This game is spectacular.
Got to admit that your post made me smile.  Great to hear that golf is giving you so much enjoyment and time with you son.

Congrats to the OP!  I love and hate this game like all of us, I assume.  Good days on a golf course cannot be beat.

I really wish my son liked golf.  He's a big, strong kid and can hit it a mile when he connects with it.  But he has only ever really gone to the range with me (a few times on the course but he was just along for the ride, mostly).  And he absolutely will not listen to me regarding his swing.  So frustrating!  He loves basketball, though, and that is our "bonding" sport, and I have coached him for many years now, and it has been awesome to see him get better.  He will end up better than I ever was, which is cool.  But I've had 3 knee surgeries over the past handful of years, so I only fool around on the basketball court with him now...no more competitive pickup games for me unfortunately.

I would ask for tips on getting a kid interested in golf, but I'm generally of the belief that you expose them to it as much as you can, try to make it fun, and they will either take to it or they won't...
