There will be 3 parts to this post. So if you hate something, just skip to the next section.
If you hate sports (*spoiler alert* you can skip to section 2)
Part 1: Golf 101 What does it all Mean?
This will be a really quick rundown. The full rules and greater detail will need its own post on another day!
Bogey = bad. Eagle = Tiger Woods
Part 2: My Weekend Shenanigans with Miss Pretty Face Sami
As I'm sure you gathered from this highly brief tutorial above, I played in a golf tournament for work this weekend! Other than Top Golf last week, I hadn't played in several years, so needless to say I was a bit nervous.
Golf was what I did with my Dad from age 8 on up. I was really good (yes, I'm allowed to toot my own horn from time-to-time). Well he passed away on June 2, 2006. He suffered a stroke during a routine heart catherization and passed away about two weeks later. I don't talk much about him, that time in the hospital or about the pain of losing my father at 19. I find people get uncomfortable and don't know what to say to me. That is the last thing I ever want (it is just same old bubbly me, after all!) so I just keep it all in. Oddly enough, many of my dear friends I have made over the past 7 years never even met him.
Well, I took that as a TRUE sign from above when my company did its first golf tournament in 4 years on the exact anniversary of my Dad's death. I knew Dad was sayin, "Sar, get out there and LET THE BIG DOG EAT!" This is golf slang for, step up to the tee and KILL IT!
And that is exactly what I did. I'm not sure if it was the beautiful weather, the new golf clubs I bought for the occasion or Dad helping me out but I played one helluva golf round. It was really really really fun. I know Dad was watching.
Oh, and someone else had to buy me a beer. Why you ask?
Well, I got closest to the pin on a par 3.
And..... because I got my first EAGLE ever ever ever ever!! EEK!
Needless to say. It was a good day. Then Gee got to go swimming. And by that I mean his paws went swimming. He then promptly got right back out, never to do that again.
.... And finally part 3 (are you exhausted yet?)
