Back in early December I wrote about my encounter with the coots. You may recall that I hit one of those ugly birds with my new hybrid club. Ever since it has been called the “Coot Slayer.”
I had been wanting a driver to add to my meager collection of clubs. So for Christmas Dan got me a used club for a whopping $59.00. He was skeptical I could use such a long club, so why spend a lot of money? Smart thinking on his part!
The first day I took my club to the course I was playing in a foursome. Those poor people did not know the laughs they were in for. My friend had her bag well off to the side and was waiting for me to tee off. She had taken the squirrel cover off her driver and set it on top of the club. Oh, I hit the ball alright! I hit the squirrel in the head and knocked it off the club. I killed it! So my friends decided the driver needed a name. It is now known as the “Marmot Masher.”
Truth be told I am really quite good with this club now that I’ve learned to swing it correctly-well better than before. Golfing with me is an experience you will never forget. I provide great dinner table stories sure to entertain!
