An early Christmas gift

To say K really enjoys golf would be an understatement.  And since golfers are known to have a penchant for purchasing the latest/greatest golf technology, we set  up a somewhat tongue-in-cheek scoring system for her to upgrade her equipment.  When she broke 100, we would get her a new bag. When she broke 95, we would get her a new driver.  When she broke 90, we would get her some new irons.

Well, she first broke 100 less than a year after she started playing golf.

She broke 95 about a year later.

Then, last October, she shot an 89 in her league tournament.

So, soon afterward, she started the hunt for her new irons.  As luck would have it, as a part of her league tournament, she won a session with a club fitter.  After spending four hours with the club fitter, looking at her swing and trying out just about every club available, she found the perfect clubs.

BTW, did I mention that she was supposed to have only one hour with the club fitter?  I guess most club fitters work with male golfers most of the time, so they don’t have a problem giving a couple of gratis hours to an attractive woman who is into golf. But I digress.

So, since these clubs were not something you pick up off the shelf at Walmart, they took several weeks to manufacture.

Guess what showed up this weekend?

Notice the goofy grin on her face.

In case you're wondering, they're Ping G15 Blue Dot. And they're offically "men's" clubs. She's very proud of that fact.

Since the workshop had a large door that opened up to the range, she had to try them out, in spite of the weather.
Yes, there was snow on the ground.

And who/what did she kiss first?

    I think my next job may be that of “club fitter.” It seems there are some fringe benefits to that job. Now let me also do the math: 1 hour = 4 hours. Sounds like a winner all around to me.
    PS: Boy does my left arm hurt just thinking about it.

    She has the prettiest swing. OH, and do you have the SwingReader app for your iPhone? Craig made me get one so that I could record his swing and he could sit there and obsess about it.
