Tales of a golf widow...

Augusta National
So the hubs LOVES golf - I mean he's like a kid on Christmas when it comes to anything golf related.  He plays whenever time permits (which hasn't been very often lately), loves his clubs almost as much as me (kidding), and watches golf network at every opportunity.  Me - eh, not so much a golfer.  I love most sports but I never really got down with golf so my husband spends quite a bit of his time trying to convince me to learn the game - so far, I've managed to come up with enough reasonable excuses to avoid "hitting the links" (or rather the houses and cars along the links).  So this time of year when all of the tournaments really get going, my TV is consumed most weekends by golf tournaments.  Actually - point in case - a golf tournament was on in my L&D room while I was in labor with Addie - YES, he was watching golf as I was having contractions - ha!


Dustin Johnson
Padraig Harrington
So, now that I've said all that - I say this - the Masters is on this weekend and I could not be more excited!!  The course in Augusta, GA is absolutely, breathtakingly beautiful!  This is the only tournament I would actually love to go to and watch.  I love all the azalea bushes that are in bloom and there is just something comforting about this tournament for me.  So...as much as I dread most "golf weekends" this is one I actually look forward to - plus, I have a slight crush on Padraig Harrington and Dustin Johnson (not sure what it is - I just think they are cuties) - that helps me get through the tournaments as well.  Happy Friday!!!

PS Anyone ever noticed how beautiful every golfer's wife is??

Well you know the deal with JD and golf. And I always knew S liked it but I never realized how much until we were discussing his love for Golf Digest last weekend!! :)

Yes, I can totally relate to this post. My husband loves to golf. He goes back and fourth between golf and fishing, golf and fishing.

oh girl, I am SO on this same boat. I actually met my husband at a golf country club, (I was working, he was a member) and he golfs ALL THE TIME. Like, 4 days a week. It's crazy. I am SO a golf widow :)

My husband is a huge golfer too! As a matter of fact he hit range balls before he came home today and is heading out to play 18 tomorrow morning. As I type, my TV is on replayed Masters coverage. My husband actually got to go to a practice round of the Masters about 3 years ago with his boss. He said it was AWESOME! I tried to start learning to play golf a few years ago and have not picked up a club in ages! Such a hard game!

Well we def. have this in common. My husband Luurrvves his golf. There have been times when it got.on.my.nerves. But now....not so much. I love my quite Saturdays! The only thing that I can't stand is The Golf Channel being on our TV 24/7 and I'm not exaggerating! He stands in front of the TV and practices his stance. HA! Bless his heart. Glad I stopped by!
