Shooter McGavin

Hey, if I saw myself in clothes like that, I'd have to kick my own ass.
– Happy Gilmore 


so friday was my 29th birthday. and i feel like i've been celebrating for 2 weeks...oh wait, i have been.

i would like to give you every last detail but it's to much. i would however like to thank all my friends and family who have helped celebrate!!! thanks for all the cards, gifts and drinks!!!!

on my actual birthday i decided to go golfing. i'm not good. i cheat when i golf. i can't help it. if i don't like my first drive i'll keep dropping balls until i get something worth playing. my biggest no-no: if i'm to close to a tree i'll throw it on the fairway. usually no more than 5 feet...unless i'm really in the woods.

anyways, me, jon, ajp, my dad and new friend Bodoni (actually Biondi) went to Little Met to play a round of golf.

not gonna lie. i was kinda disappointed. it was almost too much of a beginner course for me. i think i only threw my ball 3 times! so i'm either getting better or its to easy. they didn't have any working golf carts, however the hand cart came in handy and you're not allowed to bring adult beverages on the course. actually, maybe playing sober is why i did so well...hmmmm

on the plus side of Little Met, i did get to see a mama deer, two fawns, ground hog and a hawk.

i've only been on two other courses Sleepy Hollow and Brandywine. Sleepy Hollow was my first course ever and it was for a client. But i think my heart belongs to Brandywine. i love the front 9. the last hole is especially awesome. it over looks a pond and the club house. i've lost a ton of balls trying my hardest to land on the green. the last time i was there my brother almost hit a lexus in the parking lot and i just happened to hit the 1" thick electrical wire that drapes over the pond...go figure.

so now i have have the golf bug. i bought a set of clubs and bag at unique thrift for a total of $25. My 7 wood is originally like $150!!!

since i didn't plan a super long vacation this year i'm totally up for a round. i'm willing to try another course or just go to Brandywine.

don't worry. derby update is coming soon!
