With much of this hunting season in the bag, it's time now to polish up the irons and knock the rust off the old golf game.
As many of you are well aware, my oldest daughter Parker, eleven, is a talented junior golfer. This past fall she added hunting to her expanding doisié of sporting activities. After spending the past three months chasing bucks rather than birdies, how would her 2013 golfing campaign unfold? Well, surprisingly enough, quite nicely. Four holes into her first round back and her pretty pink Precept found the bottom of the cup for her second hole-in-one. Apparently, the time off and hours afield were benefitial to her game. Normally, this time of year it's a bit like starting anew, but not the case thus far. Her swing looks better than ever and an ace out of the gate has her confidence at an all time high. But golf is fickle and you never know what lies around the next dogleg. Rather than speculating on the impossible, I thought it might be nice to take a look back to where it all began. Below is a home video I made of Parker back in 2007. At the time, she had only been playing golf for about six months. Enjoy.
