Does your golf practice have emotion?

Sergio-emotion

Every Thursday I take my son & daughter Johan (4) & Juliet (3) swimming.

When leaving the leisure complex, Juliet got left behind and got stuck in the foyer between two automatic glass sliding doors.

Rhythm is a Dancer

Rhythm is a Dancer

Rhythm........

Ever felt like you have really got it going at the range, especially the last twenty balls?

You walk to the first tee after your last range session with your chest held out like Seve in his pomp.

Three holes later and you feel more like Jean Van De Velde in the 1999 Open.
