My grandpa taught me about the sport and I just immediately got hooked onto it. Ever since I learned about the sport I would always go to the driving range to practice and to try to get good at it. My parents didn’t think it was a good idea at first because I was only a year old. I was also taught on how to act on the course and to control myself if I hit a bad shot. Golf fits my personality because it was the only sport I really was interested in and that I wanted to be part of any sport and that’s how I learned about

I thought to myself, “Uh-oh, this can’t be good!” He then proceeded to give me another speech and tried to get my head back in the game. As I walked up to hit my next shot off the tee box I took a deep breath, I set up to my golf ball, and I hit it straight down the middle.

After two days of sweaty, hard working tryouts we finally made it. I looked to my left and saw backs straight, feet shoulder length apart, perfect L shaped backswings. I looked to my right and saw collared shirts, hats, visors, golf shoes,and golf skirts and golf shorts; however I did know one thing.
I went to the Capitol for five days and yes I played golf every one of those days. The first day my father and I drove down from our home in Dallas, but instead of going straight to the hotel I had to sit in on one of his business meetings. To be honest it was not as bad as I expected it. It took about an hour and then I had to shake everyone’s hand and sit up real tall as my dad advised me. After the meeting we drove down to the resort which was about 45 minutes away.
