Originally, I was not here for me, I was here for my friends to support them, but when I got there I realized that I did want to make the golf team and it would be a very good opportunity for me to be able to be on the golf team and have a fun time with my friends. 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 knew that my clubs were the best money could buy.
The theme I chose was “Fear can prevent people from pursuing their dreams”, (Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist). I can relate to this because I have experienced fear trying to reach this goal I had set. This goal was to be an incredible golfer. About two years ago I was pushed by my parents to join a golf tournament. At the time I was playing golf and I absolutely liked it
I never thought it was possible to experience awful anxiety, utter joy, gut wrenching heartbreak, immense excitement, and total confusion in a period of two to three hours until I joined my high school’s golf team. Although many may see golf as a boring sport (if they view it as a sport at all), hitting that little white ball into a tiny hole hundreds of yards away has taught me a lot about life. From learning how to accept the inevitable to constantly searching for ways to improve, I have done many things in the world of golf that have helped me live my life to the fullest. Self-reliance is arguably one of the most important skills one attain in life. When you make a mistake in golf, there is no one to help you recover from that mistake
My First College Football Game Clemson vs. NC State was the first college football game I had ever gone to; I remember how excited I was to watch Clemson beat NC State. My step sister Emmaline was a student at Clemson obtained six free tickets that would normally cost five-hundred dollars. My family and I had just driven four hours to watch our favorite football team compete. I expected Clemson to win with ease and was thrilled to finally see them play. Little did I know that it would be filled with new experiences, intense moments, and even become a yearly family tradition.
I could throw it pretty far since it was so small and that made it really fun to play. I played soccer for about four years, but I just knew that it was not for me. In sixth grade I even tried out football for a year. That was a big mistake. I was not a huge fan of being trampled by big sweaty kids twice my size.
1. In the summer of 2017, I volunteered once a week for 6-8 weeks with an organization called The First Tee, which works with youth to teach them life skills via the game of golf. Starting as young as 5-6 years old, the participants learn to play golf and develop their skills in the sport, but a large aspect of the organization’s mission is to teach children life skills such as integrity, honesty, and responsibility. Through golf they learn to be courteous to those around them and to always act with integrity as well.
We approached the green, and my parents putted their balls in the hole twice. Therefore, my mom got a five, and my dad got a four for the seventh hole. We approached number eight tee box, and we saw the fairway clear. We started playing our eighth hole. My dad hit another straight shot, and it landed next to the hole.
I believe that the awards I have won through my participation in golf, basketball, and track exemplify my passion and drive to do my best. While trophies and certificates are fun to receive, they all too soon gather dust and are forgotten. What I will never forget are the lessons I learned through my involvement in high school sports. At the very least, high school sports have prepared me for my future at The Ohio State University where I plan to major in Social and Behavioral Sciences. This degree will be an integral part of achieving my ultimate goal of one day becoming a licensed Speech Pathologist.
Welcome to the most important set of equipment the world has ever seen: my five year old golf clubs. Let us travel through this set of clubs which includes a huge difference in clubs that compares to each one of my five College Composition I essays. Depending on the club, some clubs maybe be more reliable and interesting, but all play a major part in the overall writing this paper as it reveals information about my life, values and struggles. My first essay would easily be compared to my trusty 52 degree wedge. When I was first given this assignment, my mind raced to describing why my faith journey has had a major impact on my live and confidence in myself; this compares to my confidence I have in my 52 degree wedge on the golf course.
He told reporters at the New York Post that, “Since his break from professional golf, he had cut some negative influences from his inner circle.” This is very good for Dustin because he can go back to being the great golfer that he is. Some things that I have learned from Dustin Johnson’s career is that you should think about everything before you do it. You never want to do something bad and regret it
