From the Publisher's Desk: Golf — A lifetime of learning

One summer, about 50 years ago, I signed up for golf lessons with two friends. Their parents belonged to a club called “The Hacienda” in San Pedro, and they invited me to join them for golf lessons and swim in the pool afterward. No one in my family played golf so I really didn’t know anything about the game, but it sounded like a fun way to hang out with my friends. I vaguely remember standing on the golf course while someone showed us the proper way to swing. It was so long ago that I don’t really recall the details.

Fast forward about 30 years and I’m on vacation with my teenage sons who are at that age when nothing a parent says or does is “cool” but you try anyway. We went to Salishan Resort on the Oregon Coast near Lincoln City, and I arranged for a group golf lesson one afternoon. Only Collin would accompany me to the driving range and we spent the next hour hitting balls. His went long and straight. Mine rarely left the ground. The pro spent all his time encouraging the student who demonstrated the most potential!
