Take Time to Make Time

Written by Mary-Rene on .

Golf will always take time no matter what your level of experience is. If you want to be a golfer, you have to commit yourself to the idea, to playing and to continuously learning.

Golf takes time to make time. I love to play golf. I would play every day if I could. But as it turns out, I normally get to play only once or twice a month. I work full time Monday through Friday 9am to 5pm, and the weekends are normally filled with juggling chores, obligations, appointments, and wanting to relax with my family. I don’t always have the time to play golf, but usually about twice a month I take time to make time. I pick a weekend morning or an evening after work to get in at least nine holes.

Putt-Putting into a better short game

When I think about playing golf, the first thing that always comes to mind is the tee box. I picture myself in the tee box with my ball set up, driver in hand, looking for my placement and how to best avoid water or woods. I imagine keeping my knees bent, my left arm straight, and my eye on the ball. At the tee box, I never envision myself 20 feet from the pin trying to get the perfect lineup to sink the putt. I never really focus on my short game.

I just have to write about Caddy Clipz

I told myself that the focus of this blog would be on the game of golf as a whole. I also told myself that I would try to avoid writing about Caddy Clipz to offer a different aspect to the Caddy Clipz website. But after four months of blogging (which I have thoroughly enjoyed), I can’t take it anymore! I just have to write about Caddy Clipz!

Golf etiquette is an expectation, not a suggestion!

My fiancé and I had a chance to play 9 holes after work this past Saturday. It was a beautiful, warm, slightly breezy spring day; perfect for golf. After warming up on the first hole, we were hitting straight and playing great. We played well for four holes. On hole 5, we had to wait for a foursome of two adults and two children to finish teeing off.

Let's Keep it Simple

We had a rain check to play the back nine at Cimarrone Golf Club so we decided to play two Sundays ago. It is normal for my 13 year old step-daughter to come along because she likes to play golf. But, my 16 year old step-son normally chooses to stay home. It was a nice, sunny, warm day and my step-son must have had some sort of cabin fever because he decided to come along. Of course, every kid loves to drive the golf cart. So, he was my driver and my step-daughter drove her dad around the course.

Rain is not a Golfer’s best friend

My most preferable golf weather is 70 degrees and sunny with just a hint of a breeze. 70 degrees is perfect for polo shirts. The sunshine feels good on my skin. The breeze is refreshing and invigorating. An early spring morning is just perfect for playing 18 holes.
