Sam studied all Sunday, pouring over Shakespeare's Much Ado about Nothing and Edith Wharton's Ethan Frome in advance of an English exam.
For a break, around 5:30 in the afternoon, we played 12 holes. The sun peeked out of the clouds and sent a deep orange, rainbow-color over the fairways. Without stress, Sam shot minus one. As we walked down the fairways, we discussed the "merry war" of Shakespeare's lovers Benedick and Beatrice.
Let's hope he does as well in the classroom as on the golf course.
