How do I know?

<--- THIS is the proper way to grip a golf club.  How do I know this, you ask.  Because Christie and I took golf lessons!!!  I have been meaning to do this post for a while, but I kept forgetting my camera to take a picture of us with our instructor, Mr Park.  Patrick took lessons as well, but he is...ahem...just a tad more advanced than Christie and me.  Our usual system was for Christie and I to take our 1/2 hour lesson while Patrick watched Adeline, and then we would switch.  Adeline LOVES all things ball, so she was very excited to play with a whole bucket of them.  

Twice, we had combined lessons on the putting green where Mr Park taught us the proper form for putting and chipping.  Adeline loved these lessons.  We just let her run around the green, picking up balls and playing with a golf club.  She spent most of her time collecting the balls in a basket and then dumping them out again or just running in the grass, which is a precious commodity around here.  Don't worry, we made sure we practiced hitting towards a flag where she was not standing.

Fun!! Golf is such a great sport - you can grow old with it!

And, that is how I hold my clubs too! T and I used to golf before children - he still does, but not as much as he'd like.

Did you know there are actually 3 different ways to hold a club? Thanks to my college professor, Stan! I tell ya, Phys Ed was the coolest major! We spent the 2 hours dedicated to finals playing rounds of pitch and putt!! :)

How fun! What a life long sport you can enjoy with your hubby. Lance enjoys golf but I have yet to learn how to play or properly hold a club :oP Maybe someday when our kids are a little older. It looks like you all had a great time. Adeline really looks like she enjoyed herself. How wonderful she could be there and play.

Oh how fun. I once tried to learn golf and was HORRIBLE. Dave keeps trying to get me back out, but so far I've begged off. I don't mind embarrassing myself every now and again for the sake of fun, but total humiliation is something different. :)

Loved the pic of Adeline on Patrick's shoulders.
