Well it should probably read – You Swing Like A Girl… but here’s the catch, I don’t! I found out last night that my clubhead speed is 90mph! That is within the range of the swing speed of the average male golfer (read: NOT Tiger Woods). I’m not going to lie…I was pretty impressed if you don’t mind me tooting my own horn.
And now I’ve been bit by the bug again…the golf bug to be exact. Always strikes right around this time of year – possibly because the Masters is on and I get to watch dreamy Adam Scott make birdies left and right and yet he comes in tied for second, sad day…. Back in high school, golf season would just be starting. We probably would have had a couple of matches already and taken our annual yearbook picture. The JV team would have 75 girls in the picture who came out to practice the first day and never came back again. Figures, they just wanted to try to meet the cute golf boys.
Normally, I’ve never played much golf in Dallas because I was busy with school and my million and one extracurricular activities. Now that I’m a “young professional” (ha, young – yes, professional – hardly) it seems fitting that I should hit the links twice a week. With two semi-successful rounds under my belt, handicap registration complete and a dozen shiny new balls in my bag, I’m looking forward to a single digit handicap season.
I joined the Tenison Park Women’s Golf Association in hopes that I would get more plugged into a golfing community and be able to enter some tournaments. I’m signed up to play for my company in the annual Hunger Busters Charity Tournament. Overall, I’m thinking I’ve got a good season ahead of me – that is until August when temps are 109 in Dallas and I can’t bear to be outside breathing that thick, mid summer air.
