JOGG -Get a grip!

Here is a page dedicated to my favourite past time at the moment-GOLF! Yes, I am hooked and bringing in lots of people with me both my sister & Sandy have expressed an interst in taking up golf.

I was introduced to golf by Lloyd James who I met through work. Lloyd is a golfer with a handicap of 0+ according to the Port Royal Handicap Board in otherwords he is a pro. He initially took Nathan & me under his wing to show us the basics of the golf swing etc. For a month or so he gave us golf instruction at Port Royal.

In January he encouraged me to have proper lessons with a golf pro so he passed me over to the capable hands of our cousin Rawn Rabain. Rawn is Alora's son.(Alora is the daughter of Leonard Simons). Rawn like his father is a golf pro and he gives lessons at Port Royal.

Rawn is an excellent teacher, he has infinite patience and he can inspire you to play well even though you don't think you are. I still meet up with Lloyd, I spent yesterday afternoon with him at Port Royal on the driving range. I figure if you play with the best, you can only get better yourself!

My first game of golf was played at the Southampton Princess course last Saturday and I had a great time! I went with Nathan(my son) and Jason Wade (Blanche Wade's grandson). It was fun. I ended up in a bunker twice and lost my ball once. At the first tee Jason suggested I use my #5 iron instead of my driver as the course is so short, he had never seen me try to hit my driver. After my first swing with my driver he turned to me and said "it's ok for you to use your driver here, I don't think you'll hit the ball too far!"
I ended the round scoring 54 on a Par 27 course- not bad for a first attempt!

If anyone is interested in having a fun game with me contact me at Hope to hear from you all soon.
