Learning and Golf- Personal Narrative It just always seemed like something that I had to do. Ever since I was ten years old I’ve been playing, practicing, and talking about golf. I always have had a love for the game, but I never really thought about how stressful and painful it made my life. Even at ten I thought my future had already been planned for me. I was already thinking of life as a professional golfer. I was certain that I would go play golf for a big college, and instant fame would soon follow. It wasn’t until the last couple of years that life has changed for me.
Lights blaring into my eyes, the crack of the bat, the shouting of the overly-devoted parents, the salty aroma arising off of the freshly roasted peanuts, all came together to create the overwhelming presence of a little league baseball game. This was a place where I spent most of my time on week day afternoons, in the spring, watching my brother succeed at America’s pastime. He was really quite good at this sport called baseball; he had just been granted the position of starting pitcher for the team. Sometimes things that have occurred in my life, and stuff I have received, that I may not have necessarily deserve, can be taken for granted. However, after what was about to take place my eyes are given a new perspective.
When I first came to Lake Highland in seventh grade my parents wanted me to be on a team to get to know people and the only sport I knew was golf. I came to the tryouts with no experience of tournaments, hammy down clubs from my sister, and not appropriate golf attire. I tried very hard for the team, but I did I didn't have the skills to make it on. It was very devastating for me because I have never been turned down before, but I knew that I had to change. After this failure I decided that I should try harder in golf. I never did take the sport seriously and barely practiced, but after being turned down I decided to step up my game. I started to practice harder and more often by my own choice. I also started to play in tournaments, which I
The one thing I buy regardless of cost is to visit the Masters golf tournament at Augusta, Georgia. The first reason is I enjoy the history. I hear about legends like Arnold Palmer, and Gary Player. I listen to Jack Nicolas’s best round. The second reason is the beautiful scenery.
Golf Presumably, there's always some sort of thinking that comes to my mind for doing something for the new. Anxiety flows into my veins and out pops the questions of if I was going to be alright. I thought I wasn’t. I heard the calling of my dad to get ready in
You will never believe what I am about to tell you! I have been a golfer since I was in third grade. I took my first golf lessons at the age of eight, and then I took more lessons at the age of eleven. I have been golfing with my dad numerous times, which led to my love for the sport and my interest in continuing. Golf is special to me because it gives me the opportunity to gain more skills, have more patience and drive, and spend quality time with my dad.
I have always believed that all people should be treated the same regardless of who you are, what you look like, or where you're from. Quite recently, towards the beginning of my senior year golf season, we obtained some new players; as a leader of the team, I figured that
The excitement I had for golf then still continues today! Golf has blessed me with numerous friendships and opportunities. I am so glad to have people supporting and encouraging me to continue my collegiate golf experience! The spring season here at Scholastica has started and I am excited to get
I believe my involvement in rugby, golf, flute and charity have contributed hugely to both my emotional and my development of skills. Throughout my time playing rugby I developed a huge range of skills. Through my time playing in the forwards and being involved in the scrummage saying to my teammates I'm here with you I'm working is just applicable to a team project I will have to do. Adaptation of a hardworking ethos where resilience and giving my all was paramount. Through my golf playing of golf I have developed a positive, optimistic and enthusiastic I have learnt to be patient and calm in my decision-making. Another key skill learnt from golf is adaptability. Throughout my time golfing I was placed in tricky situations, I learnt how to
Last year, was when I transferred from another school and I thought I would have a rough time fitting in. So I decided to join the golf team and ended up making the varsity team. Golf is an activity that makes me feel like I belong to a group where we do something we all love to do. When I’m on the course and begin to swing the club, gives me a good feeling and a place to relieve stress. Also, I have made a lot of friends. You feel like family. All of the girls on the team got along so well and I knew that coming to Burlington Central was a decision I wouldn't regret. Then for my sophomore year I applied for Peer jury it’s one of the most entertaining activities to do within the school. I learn a lot of things to become a better me and try
From a young age, I have always been involved with golf. My father is an avid golf player and would always take me out to the course with him. My seventh grade year was when I took golf more seriously and competed with the high school golf team. Competing with people who had more experience than I did gave me a motive to start practicing more and striving for better. During my eighth grade year, I had been able to place first in a few matches, beating players I had competed against the year before. As I entered high school, I realized that I could now qualify to go to European championships and compete with other golfers from around Europe. The championship lasted two days and the weather was always cold and raining. Golfers traveled from
I had pulled my scorecard out and added up my scores. The 18th was a dogleg left par 5 and with a par I shoot 78. A score that would make it through to districts. Following an arid tee shot, I disobeyed my coach in club choice for my second shot. The dominos began to fall and one bad shot followed another. I took a triple bogey on an easy hole and I knew as soon as I picked my ball up out of the cup that I had let people down. Waiting was the worse part of the whole process, it just dragged out the failure. After an hour passed and the news was given that I finished fifth, just short of being in that top four. That was the longest bus ride home ever. It was the start of a new fire and a new beginning.
The sun burns my eyes and I can barely see, it’s a hot thursday night, people cheering runs through my head, and the pressure is on. Everyone’s attention is on me. It’s a sunny Friday and AC DC is blasting my ears to get me ready for the big game
What if you were golfing and found a zombie golfer chasing you around? Well, thIs is what happened to me last Halloween. It was Halloween, 2016, and I was playing 18 holes on the golf course when I heard a loud noise coming from the woods. The sound sounded
Golf is something I have always played. The more I play the game, the more I think about how it relates to life and how everything one does on a golf course can be something that one should be doing in life. I use the lessons that I have learned on the course and I apply them to my life, I feel it has helped me grow and become the man I am today.
