    Who wants to go hit a few balls? I have a company golf outing coming up. I haven’t touched my clubs in 7 years. I used to be able to not embarrass myself. Never that great. Let’s go hit a few balls and help me get back into the swing of things.

    Think of all the long range shooting you could do . . . .

    I ain't never seen one of them little golf critters, they must be kin to snipe. Judging by the size of their balls, the must be close in size to a mule deer.

    They gotta be tough too. I ain't never seen a critter where you could club their balls 200 yards without them splatterin'.

    I gets why you never see one. From the size of their holes, all they can get stuck out is their balls. Cain't be many of them left though. Reproducin' gonna be tough with all them bucks gettin' turned into does . . . .

    Chuck seem to get his fair share to be puttin' their little sack skins on'a all of his pistols.

    I only seen what's left of one after he tried to get out of the course. I think that's why they put all of that barbie wire around them. Seems to be a good way to collect them balls . . . . .

    Keep your head down, look at the ball through your swing and relax is the most important thing.
    Pretend there is a fishing line with a hook from the bill of your hat to your scrotum.
    Don’t lift your head.

    Well, I did okay hitting a few today. Much better than I thought I would.

    Speaking of shooting...maybe I’ll bring a bag of old balls out to KY next year so you guys can practice your shotgunning while I practice with my wedge. Could be fun!

    I tried golfing once . . . .

    Didn't do too bad. My golf score was about the same as my bowling scores . . . . . in the low 90's.

    If I keep practicing, maybe I can get good enough to play all 18 holes and put the bumpers down . . . . .

    I think I broke 85 once. My bowling was always better than my golfing. That reminds me that I need to break out my bowling ball too. I had a really sick hook. Used to bowl on a league years back.

    Yeah, my low 90's was on the front 9 . . . .

    My foursome asked me to sit out the back 9 . . . .
