A special game. A true sport of mind and body.
Not everyone who plays golf will become a golfer. Not every golfer will become decent, much less will ever be deemed to be good. For the latter, it takes years of dedication, focus, opportunity, patience, willpower and a true, bottomless love of the game.
For women, it may sometimes seem like an uphill battle. Golf shops have less options for them. Tee boxes can sometimes be inconsiderate and overwhelming, making courses appear demonstrably long. Only 1.98% of female golfers ever break 80.
Those ladies that have managed it are proven golfers and the game becomes less a sport and more of a way of life. They are elite.
It is with great pleasure that I can now inform you that this Sunday at 11 a.m., you have an appointment at GOLFDOM.
Unfortunately, Jon Pak, world-renowned club-fitter, does not work Sundays and Mondays. However, due to a last-minute phone call by an impassioned husband and Jon Pak's immeasurable generosity and the fact that he lives two minutes from the store, he has offered you a special club-fitting appointment... for CHRISTMAS... for a new DRIVER!!
* Author's Note: This post was a surprise Christmas present for my wonderful wife, who on 12/13/22 shot a 39 on the front nine of Oyster Bay Golf Links in Calabash, NC. I couldn't have been prouder. I grew up playing this course with my father. It was one of his favorites. Just bringing her here has always been a pleasure, but seeing her grow in the game (now only five years in) to the point where she's on the cusp of breaking 80, I feel honored and enveloped with gratitude.
