Round Played: with Danny and Linda Lyons –
By Wayne Halm –
We had so much fun the first time – We did it again.
On November 29th 2014 I played the Kauai Lagoons course with Danny and Linda Lyons from Hanalei, Hawaii. We had played before.
My buddy, Jeff Nisenoff, from the Big Island joined us. It had been a couple of years since I golfed with Jeff – his game had changed.
Sally, my wife, decided to ride along with me on this day. As she put it, I think you might benefit from some “coaching”.
So four happy golfers and “Coach Sally’ started out onto the course. Things went well for a few holes – but things changed.
I felt good and thought I was doing well by the time we reached the ocean – because the coaches seemed happy.
The challenging 14th tee is one of the places where the island is still growing, one golf ball at a time. There I received some extremely sound coaching advice.
But my par on the 16th hole changed the coaches attitudes toward me. Maybe I would get some respect.
Coach Sally was persistent. She didn’t give up on me. She coached me even on the 18th hole – but she was kinder.
So, did all of that coaching make me a better golfer? Well, it made me a happier golfer anyway. This was a great fun round – the way golf should be.
Come play golf with me.
