As impulse purchases go, it was a doozey.April 19, 2010
The golf bag I drew is based on my own golf bag. When I was in college I played quite a bit of golf when weather permitted. Because my friends and I were poor college students, we couldn’t afford to rent clubs and I was the only person who owned a set (a wonderful present from my parents). This was a problem. The local course didn’t allow two players to share a set of clubs let alone a foursome. Our solution:
We each learned to play with three clubs.
My “set” consisted of the putter, a nine iron, and a five iron. I actually didn’t do too badly. The original five iron was broken/replaced by one of my friends early on. He replaced it with a used $8 five iron. A used children’s $8 five iron. A used children’s five iron that was also quite blackened and burned from being used repeatedly as a fire poker. (really)
Nevertheless, I can still hit fairly straight and consistent shots of almost 200 yards with my old, used, child-sized, fire poker. Too bad it’s the only consistent thing in my golf game.
