Oh Baby! I Can't Believe It Went That Far.

                                "Oh Baby! I can't believe it went that far." 

I wasn't going to post this but Barbara Todaro has asked me to post a video of my golf swing in the past. I've never wanted to do that but this video just HAS to be shared. Anna Banana Kruchten Arizona's Top Banana! is the one who encouraged me to share this particular one.

Last Saturday when my friend Jennifer and I played golf, unbeknownst to me she decided to take a video of me teeing off on #7. This is our signature hole, a 141-yard par 3. I've lost a lot of distance in the last year due to back issues so I pulled out my 9 wood which used to be my 150 yard club. I figured I would come up short and be able to chip on for a par putt. Well, the ball shot off the clubhead straight toward the pin. It landed just in front of the flag and kept going... ending up just off the back of the green.

I got a little animated as it was happening, so enjoy!


It's only 11 seconds but kind of funny. Be sure to turn your sound on.

Hi James Dray 
It's good to be back. Last Fall I had my doubts.  Are you playing these days?

Hello Carol,  I saw this on Facebook.  It is so much fun to watch. Initially, I did not know it was you - but when I realized it was you, it made it that much more fun to watch!

Loved this, Carol. I didn't see it until Barbara Todaro reblogged it. Very exciting, even for this non-golfer.

Enjoy your weekend!

Hi Sharon Lee 
Yes, it's good to be backout playing. I'm being very careful not to put too much stress on my back. Don't want to go through what I did last Fall.

We were having a lot of fun and then this happened. We laughed about it the rest of the day.

If I'd known Jennifer was doing a video I might have restrained myself and it wouldn't have been nearly so much fun to watch!  LOL

I have been hit in the back of the leg and several other places while waiting for my second shot at the tee. Many of the golfers that struck the ball that struck me said that they couldn't believe they hit it that far... 

I can....

Hi Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS 
Fortunately, there were no golfers on the green I was aiming at.  And, yes, there are impatient golfers who should wait to hit their shots. Not sure why they're in such a hurry.

If you swing for it with all you’ve got, sometimes you can just get that far

Hi Laura Cerrano 
Surprisingly, in golf, sometimes the easier you swing the farther it goes!

Carol Williams - I'm glad you listened to your good friend Anna Banana Kruchten Arizona's Top Banana! who encouraged you to illustrate your swing. Your description of the clubs you used was really interesting too! The video was short, to the point, and expressed your emotional high that was so much fun to watch. 

You're very, very lucky to have good friends in your life who support you and love you.

Carol, great job, and I probably would miss the ball all-together and be very embarrassed.
