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
I remember I could tell I was going to have a great game because of how close I was putting the ball to the hole. There was one putt that I made that was nearly fifteen feet across a curving green. As time passed, more of my team members arrived along with the teams from other schools. Pretty soon, the first players were teeing off the number one tee. I watched my teammates tee off, hearing their drivers connect to the ball with a ping, and then see their ball streaking away toward the fairway or just left or right of it.
I started horrible and was three over par in my first three holes. I shot a front nine score of 40 and I started the back nine with a chip on my shoulder to go low. I played well on the back and shot a 34 adding up to a total score of 74. I could have done a bit better but I had a chance to be top five and that was my goal. I got 6th place in the tournament and was not happy but I gained experience and never gave up.
The day did improve, somewhat, as it went on and everyone was quickly enjoying themselves again as we attended the women’s Gopher game to watch my older cousin, Taylor, play. Throughout the game, I could still sense the agitation between Alex, my dad, I, as we covered up the awkward silences by burying our noses in our phones in between the periods. To end the afternoon on a high note, the Gophers played an outstanding game and beat Wisconsin in overtime. We all left the stadium in high spirits, reminiscing over the great plays and unforgettable overtime goal. At the same time, we were exhausted from a long day and ready to head home and watch the girl’s State Tournament championship game.
Another example is Jennie we also met when I was a freshman and we were fast friends. We played doubles together and few times and had a lot of good times during bus rides to matches and inside jokes. Even to this day we still see each other from time to time and talk about tennis and share our old jokes. Another friend I made playing tennis was Sami. We played tennis together for two years and sat next to each other on the bus to every match.

A Glass of Gin for a Pharaoh As the commentator 's voice heaved desperately for air, he shouted with passion and stark excitement, "And down the stretch they come! It 's 'Go For Gin ' digging in and holding on! He is going to win the Kentucky Derby!" I recall it vividly as if only a second has passed. I was sitting before my telly on the first Saturday in May 1994.
Tiger Woods was born in Cypress, California, in 1975. Tiger Woods was raised to be a champion. Brought up by a father who put a golf club in his hands before he could walk.

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.
And so, I went to cricket coaching with the same excitement and energy from the match I’d seen. I did every single drill the coach asked me to do: ranging from running across a lake (the total length was 5 kilometers) to shadow practicing until I perfected the form of my shot. It was all in the belief that I would one day be good enough to play on the Indian team. I jumped at my parents and forced them to let me control the TV every time I could, just so that I could watch famous cricket matches on DVD. I also played cricket with my friends every weekend, collected cricket cards, … you get the idea.
