Golf: It's more than just a game
By parlady83 on 10/11/12
Alexandra "parlady83" Lunde recently fell in love with golf again. She is no stranger to the game, however, she just recently decided to commit herself to become a "good" golfer so she started a blog to document her experiences on the links. She submitted her first post to oob as a guest column and we're publishing it for your reading pleasure. And yes, she is my sister so I will delete all inappropriate comments in a heartbeat! Enjoy!
The title of my new blog "Golf: It's more than just a game" is also the title of my first post, which is appropriate because the purpose of my blog is to document my golf experience ("Getting Good at Golf" made the top 2 for potential blog titles).
I have played golf as sporadically as humanly possible. From the ages of 10-12 I took lessons with my younger brother mustang6560. The next time I played was probably five years ago and since then have "hit the links" occasionally with no sense of discipline or strong desire to invest the time, energy or money necessary for improving. Well the times are changin' and I feel compelled to give this sport "the old college try."
So what do you need to know (so much)? But let's first examine the factors of why learn golf now (in order of importance).
This was written by Alexandra Lunde, a reader/follower/fellow oober and the opinions are 100% hers and do not reflect those of oobgolf in anyway. Enjoy! I'm sure she's ready for your feedback. If you want to read more, check out her blog Golf: It's more than just a game.

Good stuff, looking forward to following the updates.
"... I am hoping to find a sense of peace on the golf course and use this learning as a theraputic experience..." not going to happen if you're really taking golf up seriously. Stress relief maybe if you're into the club throwing and banging on the ground... LoL
Joking aside, i wish you the best of luck in this new road you're taking towards golf! It's a bumpy road but it will be filled with great memories to share!
Good luck girl, look forward to reading about your adventures.
good luck....it is a great game...

The Norwegian contingent of oobGolf also wishes you the best! If you feel more comfortable learning the game alongside other women (and perhaps doing some business networking), the Dallas chapter of the Executive Women's Golf Association could be a good resource for you:
Great idea for a blog, I'll be tuning in.
PS now that you are one of us, you can say that you "hit the links" without putting it quotations.
