TST Call to Action - Create a Golfer in 2014! - Page 12

post #199 of 200

Level 2:

I introduced my friend Josh to golf.  I talked him into going out to our Local 9 hole par three course for a "mixer" or best ball tournament and let him use an old set of clubs I had.  I told him not to worry about his shots, but to just have fun.  If he made a putt or two he would contribute fine to the team.  (He was worried about not contributing and helping).  I let him know how best ball works and it doesn't matter how bad he hit the ball as long as one of us on the TEAM hit an okay shot.  There was no "pressure"...    Result:  We went out and placed and won a gift certificate to the pro shop...  He went in and bought some golf balls and a golf glove...  Making progress!!   We've ended up at the range about 3 times and played about 3 other times since... 

 

The next goal is going to be to get him out for a regular round so he starts to know what he shoots on his own.  He wants me to help him buy a good set and was about to get some used Cleveland BLADES!!!!!!...  Time for some education! - Had to tell him NO!!!!... not your first set lol...

Got my wife into the sport... i know i know.... "bad move" some people say. 

 

but with the hours we both keep at work and all the stuff we are doing to the house, it is nice getting out together. Also, I would rather take her golfing that not go golfing at all
