Blades of Grass

Did you know that there are over 250 varieties of grass in North America? We learned this yesterday at the third meeting of our new Golf I class.

Sunshine! Golf returns at last. We are happy.

Last week, we started Golf I for the fifth (or sixth) time. Once again, we find ourselves breaking in a new teacher. (One might question whether or not WNMLF golf leaguers are emptying out the pool of available golf teachers in San Juan County, but we prefer not to go there.)

It turns out that all of these blades of grass are out there, just waiting to do something strange to your golf ball. It all depends on the variety of grass, the angle of the sun, the presence or absence of wind, length of time since mowing or watering, and even how you manage to connect with the ball.

Who knew?

  1. You've sealed the deal! I will NEVER attempt to hit that little ball... Even though you are going to say: never say never...
