That's What She Said

Recently Grandy has been introduced to a new adventure. GOLF!

Golf is NOT an easy sport. You are hitting a small ball, not much bigger than a shooter's marble, with a very long "stick", to find a hole that is FAR AWAY. Really? Who invented this game? I haven't done any homework on this, but I imagine it was someone with a little too much time on his hands.

While Grandy participated in her first EVER golf tournament (yes, she managed to get a few lessons in beforehand) she learned that the sport is full of little sillies that made her giggle and think to herself "That's what she said."

So here are some of the doozies that Grandy witnessed, and giggled about.

**I lost my ball.

**Which size should I use?

**You almost got the hole!

And of course, my favorite of the day...

**I'll leave it in just long enough, until you get close...then I'll pull it out.

Really folks. Grandy couldn't recover from this one, she ended up "putting" the ball across the green and falling to the ground.

So although golf is a hard sport, it's great fun for the 12 year old mind of mine. I can see that there will be much more to learn about this sport. Time for me to invest in some YouTube time with this little guy.

Nice to see you back first of all Grandy :) One thing my boss said that sticks in my mind about Golf is... "It ruins a good walk" My dad plays saturdays and sundays and sometimes in the week. I might try it when my footballing days (sorry soccer) are over

Christina said...

Well, that last one is just TOO hysterical! How does anyone keep a straight face playing that game??

Joyce-Anne said...

My husband always says to always keep your eye on the ball. Just thought I'd share that tidbit. It helped me, my swing-no. But, I always managed to hit the ball - when I was looking at it. (And, no I don't play golf.)

Grandy said...

Sandy~ Haha...We would have a blast!

Wiggy~ Kinda nice to be back, thanks!! I knew what you meant on the football thing too. ;)

Christina~ I have no idea, but I will tell you...some people take the sport TOO seriously.

JA~ Your hubby is a regular Foghorn Leghorn. :)

LOL ... good for YOU! If I only had the time, I might give golf a go myself. Just dropped by to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving ;-)
Hugs and blessings,

Deanna said...

hmmm...I think you and I should never golf together. We'd get banned from the club. Polite society and Deanna?? ha!
Plus, I'd be a lousy partner. I've never golfed.
