YeeeHawww! Today was the first time back on a driving range since the cold weather settled in. It felt a little silly, starting all over again after having forgotten anything I had started to learn last season. After a while it felt a little more familiar and overall it was a good time.
Best part was that Joshua came with for the first time! :)
Worst part was that Joshua is a golf NATURAL. Sheesh!
Kid's never had a hand on a real golf club - ever - and he caught on as fast as a California wildfire!
Put it this way... My first lesson (May 6 of last year) I used a 7 iron. That's it - just one club. It took me weeks of practice to move to a 5 and a putter and slowly begin to try the other clubs. Heck, I've yet to try several of my own clubs.
Joshua gets a 5 minute quickie on holding a club, how to stand and swing and he smacks it... 75 yards, dead on. No slice, no hook, nothin'. Three clubs later he's still doing well!
Yes, he had a few 'practice swings" and a few "practice shots", but all in all... fantastic! He's an absolute natural.
Me? I'm geeked. His comment later at home? A very calm, "That was fun."
