At the age of fifteen, the end of my freshman year in high school, I started golf. Being in a sport I had to keep up a high grade point average I worked very hard to maintain a 4.0 GPA on our 5.0 scales. Therefore, I continued to work hard to stay up in the ranks and also stay eligible, I was able to receive an invite to join the National Honors Society. I was excited that all my hard work was paying off not only for just being eligible to play golf, but to also be allowed to join a very elite and well-known Society. Golf motivated me and helped me have a positive look at my schoolwork, which also helped me receive my Golf Scholarship, to the Colorado
Learning Golf was struggling and hard at first but then it got better over the years by going out and playing a lot. One problem that happened was when I wasn’t doing so good every time I would go out and play. Every shot I would hit it would be a bad shot or the ball would be in the water or the sand or even in people’s backyards. I fixed my problem by having lessons with someone to help me get better and not put the ball in the water or sand. Ever since I had lessons with someone, I have been doing great and getting even better and shooting lower scores.
This was one of four or five pars I made that day at Mahoney. I realize that those pars were the result of the hard work and practice I went through the past weeks. After I had made the team, practices started right away. I looked forward to these practices every single day after school. I especially enjoyed playing a round of nine holes with my friend Zach and a new friend I had made named John.
As I looked about, everyone around me appeared to be very good at golf, and knew exactly what they were doing. 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.
Golf does require skill, practice, and athleticism, the same as other sports. Pro golfers practice often, are in great physical condition and make a living from golfing. Golf draws many spectators per year. Golf meets the definition of a sport because it takes skill and practice to be a great golfer, and meets the large majority of definitions. A sport is defined as “Sport means all forms of physical activity, which through casual or organised participation, aim at expressing or improving physical fitness and mental well-being, forming social relationships or obtaining results in competition at all levels" by the council of Europe charter on sport (Taylor).
The PGA Championship is the last of the four major tournaments. By winning just one of these tournaments in a golfer’s career can change their life forever. A golfer can barely win one of these in a couple years time, but Tiger won all four of these majors in a row. The year of 2000 when he became the only golfer to ever accomplish this is the day golf became famous. By Tiger setting the goal very high for other golfers around the world and even in the United States, make the competitors try even harder.
My role was to help the other coaches run the golf classes, making sure they ran smoothly and that the students were safe and enjoying themselves. Through this experience, I was able to develop skills in several areas, such as team collaboration, as well as managing a class. I worked with at least one other coach for every class, so it was my responsibility to work well with my counterparts, and I also learned to supervise children and be an effective role model, which can be challenging with children so young. Young students often lack focus and the understanding of how to conduct themselves, but this was valuable in that it forced me to try different approaches to find the most effective in keeping them in control but also making sure they were happy. 2.
country golf, a speed round of golf, and of course, having days where half the course is closed for junior golfers. Cross country golf is a game where players start at one hole and then shoot to another. For example, if a player started on hole 1 they would have to finish on hole 8. This type of game really helps the player break out of their comfort zone and pushes them to make those challenging shots. Speed rounds are self-explanatory.
I have attended four different high schools in four years. I have always participated in sports throughout high school. Although after school activities have made a huge impact on my high school career, none have been more of an influence than football. I played football alongside numerous teammates and coaches, and was taught valuable life lessons for use on and off of the field. When I joined the football team my freshman year, I did not fully understand what I was getting into.
I got 6th place in the tournament and was not happy but I gained experience and never gave up. My father and I drove back to Dallas and were greeted by the rest of my family who were all over the country and some in different countries. My Spring Break was fun because I got to spend five days with my dad and we did what we both love to do. I was upset that I did not win but you can’t always win and you have to learn how to lose and be a good loser. Spring Break 2018 was one for the record
Even though Lee had a “baseball-like swing”, but that didn’t stop him from getting a golf equipment named after him, and winning all these awards. Lee was also in the Marines for, four years and he loved it. He would play at golf matches when he was there, but his love for golf was so strong he wanted to go on and pursue his love for it. At the 1975 Western Open he got stuck by lighting but was still practicing golf in the hospital! I think it is amazing that even though he has been through so much he has fought through it because he didn’t want to give up golf.
