18 Holes=a LONG Day...

...Monday was the big golf tournament through my work. It was a lot of fun but it was also a VERY long day, I think I was in bed by 8pm and Tuesday morning, I was STILL dragging a little bit...and I'd only had half a margarita!!!

My team was a little concerned with my skill after the first tee when my ball almost hit a passing truck on a local road-oops! It just took me a couple holes to warm up and, since it was a scramble, they used my ball a lot more than I expected! My goal was to give them at least 2-3 good shots but I definitely gave them more than that. I was on a team with three males so by the end of the day, I was one of the guys but not without getting a couple good pictures.

Here is Matt posing and *trying* to look sexy (this was like the 16th hole we'd played if you can't tell)

Oops! I hit my ball into these people's yard so Matt retrieved it for me. Hitting it into the yard is better than hitting the house which is what some people on my team did...three times.

Here are the girls from work that played, yes I was the lucky one paired up with the boys. Probably a good thing since I'm used to the rough guy talk thanks to my hubs and his friends.

My bragging moment: I didn't even want to hit but Jeremy offered me a ball so if it went in the water, no big deal. If you see the black arrow, I hit it from there, over the water and BAM! Right on the green (see the red arrow).

So there's my day of golf that I was so nervous about. It was a lot of fun and I actually wasn't too bad. We'll see if we play again next year.

Sounds like a fun but tiring day. I can't stand golf--maybe because I think I am pretty competitive at most sports until I failed at golf.

I can't imagine paying big bucks for a house on a golf course, and dodging balls all day.

Haha- you did way better than I would have! Well...actually a 5 year old could do better than me! Looks fun though:)

How funny. Your day sounds like fun.

You go, girl! I'm pretty awful at putt-putt golf so I know I'd be terrible at real golf. You're awesome, though.
