For all the hours of practice I’ve logged, all the thousands of golf balls I’ve hit at greens, I’ve never had a hole in one. I’ve had a couple hit the flag and a couple lip out, but none of them drop in for an ace. So as a player, this is more than a little frustrating and jealousy inducing to watch. But as an instructor, this is pretty damn cool.
It’s hard convincing women to take up the game, and that they’re more naturally inclined to it than us guys. It’s hard convincing beginners that all the struggle will eventually pay off. But I think teaching pro Emma Brown just created a student for life with this.
Honestly, I’m a little skeptical of the authenticity. There’s virtually no body turn, her wrists never hinge, and she swings so slow that I’m hesitant to believe the ball even made it all the way to the green. But hey, golf’s a funny game. I’ve seen a couple skulled tee shots find their way to the hole, I once saw a guy eagle our hardest par 4 off a shank from almost 170 yards out, so I could see it. Congrats lady, thanks for reminding us all that this game’s 95% luck anyways. See you on the tee..
