Love Nebraska Golf

All putts are close in their own way

My wife will hold her breath for a putt that’s headed anywhere near the hole, regardless of speed. Her sense of touch is the weakest part of her game; that makes her like 99% of all golfers.

When she hits a long putt too far, she does one of two things: follows with a putt left short, or sinks the comeback. But she’s never long twice in a row.

And just when it appears she has the green speed figured out, the frustration sets in. This leads to the part where you try to guide the ball the last two feet, not waiting for the ball to stop before hitting it again.

What I learned from my wife … when you are really frustrated, there are a few things you shouldn’t do: drive, call your significant other and putt.

I, husband, take you, wife, to be my golf partner. I promise to be true to your one true golf swing, in good shots and in bad, on rainy days and windy days, for birdies and quadruple bogeys, as long as this round shall last.

Do you, husband, enjoy golfing with wife?

I Do!
