Watch Out for Flying Golf Clubs

So, Gage, at the age of 2, can be described as an avid golfer.

"Keep your eye on the ball!"
"Don't like that putter."

He's so cute.

Despite the fact that he has a really nice set of golf clubs at Memaw & Poppa's house (they live on a golf course & he gets to play 3 days a week now that the weather is nice), and a metal Snoopy set here at the house---his favorite golf clubs are made of plastic & held together by tape.

So....on Friday evening, we're driving from Dallas into Garland, and Gage wanted his window down. All was well for a few minutes, until SSSSHHHHOOOOOOM! Out the window goes his favorite golf club. What a tough lesson to learn. It broke my heart that he was so upset. But truly---he's been told not to throw stuff out the window, and he had to learn this lesson the hard way. So, after we left Home Depot, we went back & drove the area, leaning forward searching for a bright colored plastic golf club. We found it---near the median of the road. We retrieved it. The whole way home, "Cars Just Runned Over My Golf Club!" It was barely held together by tape to begin with, so being run over a few times by cars didn't help anything. It's cracked in many many places, and nearly flat. Very sad.

So....I'll be scouring local dollar stores over the weekend looking for some cheap plastic,but perfect golf clubs.

And the next time you are in Dallas---watch out for flying golf clubs.

Reid's a big golfer too. We gt his first set of clubs at Dick's sprorting goods--a plastic snoopy set that is nice and stays togeterh. The sets we have from Walmart continually fall apart.

Where did you get the metal snoopy set??

Did the whole "don't throw things out the car window" lesson kick in yet?

Losing a golf club beats a kid throwing a shoe out the car window.
Tough lesson to learn but at least you retrieved it - battered and all. I never stopped to look for a little shoe!

I have a feeling Alex will be the same way. He adores balls. He LOVES them.

Cute.

We got ava a $3 plastic golf set when she was two at either walmart or target...the primary colored plastic kind that requires duct tape eventually. Maybe that's what you need? I would start at Walmart! I'm pretty sure that's where we were.

Aww. I'm sure it was tough on both of you. Good luck on finding some golf clubs at your dollar store!
