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

Lee was such a great golfer he was elected for the World Golf Hall Of Fame in 1981, and he will always be a great
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).
September 30th, 2000, the day I first walked into Beaver Stadium on the campus of Pennsylvania State University. I was hooked. Since that day, I have been enamored with collegiate athletics. During my senior year of high school, I realized actually playing collegiate sports was a dream I that wouldn’t be able to fulfill. Although an opportunity presented itself during my senior year of college, I was paid to work during athletic events.
I feel proud and excited when I got a chance to join Denver Ethiopian Community soccer team. Every week, we trained to improve our talent and fitness to become the best team in the tournaments. I felt like I was a favorite player from the rest of the team because of my talent, discipline and skills’. At the time it was easy for me to break through for the first team. On the other hand, I often felt out.
I’ve learned many things about softball, but one that has stuck out to me and that also applies to life is that it can be fun. However, sometimes things happen and people have got to just keep pushing through it. My third year of softball my team was very proficient, strong, and confident. When it came time to go to our first tournament, we were unquestionably excited. We knew we were going to do excellent because our team was undefeated, and with our confidence, we could do anything we wanted.
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

Now I play soccer for the Oskaloosa team and I have played for them every year in the spring and fall. We have had a pretty good team through the years and we win more games than we lose. But I enjoy playing for a bigger town because the competition is a lot harder than Sigourney ever was and it makes it more of a challenge. Some people think I’m crazy for driving to Oskaloosa after school for practice but I think it is well worth the drive. I hope to go on and play for the William Penn College soccer team and I think I have a good chance since they know who I am because I played for them and go to their
