I finally made it back to the course - to caddy my daughter Julia.
Sam is away in Amsterdam playing for the Belgian national team. I'm still recuperating from my operation and cannot swing a club. But I enjoyed walking with my 10 year old daughter.
Julia never has been as excited as her older brother about athletics and golf. Sam was a natural. When Julia first swung a club, she seemed awkward. But she has persevered and is beginning to show real talent. She whacks a five iron about 120 yards. Her chipping, still weak, is improving. Best of all, she plays with giant smile on her face, displaying real pleasure when she hits a good shot.
When Sam leaves for college, I think I have found my new golf partner.
