Golf is so popular simply because it is the best game
in the world at which to be bad.
A.A. Milne

One of the benefits of living in Florida is being able to play golf on January 6. And sweat the whole time. The weather is beautiful here, a little on the warm side, but still so lovely.

Nick's old friend and fellow golf professional, Aaron, is down here for a few months because his course up north is, well, covered with snow. Kind of difficult to see your putt in that kind of weather! Aaron was one of his closest friends when he lived here so it's nice for Nick to have him around for football, Heiniken, steak and golf (of course!).

We played on Sunday afternoon at Nick's club which was great way to get outside. And wear my new golf shoes (because everyone knows you play better golf with cuter shoes, of course).

It was also a plus because I basically got four hours of free lessons from two golf professionals.

"Keep your head down"

"Swing with your torso, not just your arms"

"Pretend you're just hitting the tee, not the ball"

"You're too far away from the ball"

"Bend your knees"

Phew! I really did play so much better but I! Wowza! I think the tips of my elbows even hurt.

I need to play golf more often for my body to get used to this. Or, at least wear my cute shoes around a little more to break them in!

Cute golf shoes. They look super comfy too. I like my golf shoes too although I haven't seen nor worn them in a few years.

Cute shoes! I was shopping in MC Sports with Derek and saw this "Hope" Golf bag with pink & purple...and it was adorable. I don't play golf - never have...but I told Derek I might pick it up if he got me the cute golf bag with matching shoes :-)
