At the Driving Range

Spring seemed particularly late in arriving but we are now finally taking advantage of nicer weather to do some more outdoor activities.

My wife used to be an avid golfer though she doesn't play too often anymore. But she had been telling Kai that she would like to show him how to golf some day. This weekend, Kai asked to go to the driving range.

My wife tried to show him the basics.

As when I try to tutor him in math on weekends, I got frustrated when he didn't listen to what my wife and I were trying to tell him.

I kept repeating, "Keep your hands together."

And he kept doing this...

The more I said it, the more it angered Kai. So after a while, I stopped saying anything.

My wife was a bit more patient and encouraging than I was. When I stopped badgering him, he seemed to actually have fun.

And, at times, he swung better.

We went through a bucket of balls and he wanted to do more, so I got another big bucket.

I don't know that we'll ever play a round together, but for one afternoon, he got to take the first steps in following Mom's footsteps.


  1. Looks like a lot of fun. My Taylor is a good golfer and was on the golf team in high school.

    You are cracking me up with a typo in your tutor Kai in meth on the weekends? :) Thanks for the smiles....hahaha....

  2. I once tried to teach Alex how to golf. However, as I was not much better than he was...we both decided to give it up :)

    1. I am not much for golf, either. Hitting a few balls at the driving range is sufficient for me... no need to go out on the course and ruin a whole day. :)
