Bill examines the fairway to make sure he does not hit it.... The non-use-of-fairway discount you know!

Remember - Golf is the closest game to the game we call life. You get bad breaks from good shots; you get good breaks from bad shots - but you have to play the ball where it lies.
- Bobby Jones

Holly provides guidance... Aim for the hole on that wide smooth green thingie

Bill likes to golf from the shade

Remember - Golf is assuredly a mystifying game. It would seem that if a person has hit a golf ball correctly a thousand times, he should be able to duplicate the performance at will. But such is certainly not the case. - Bobby Jones

Golf With Holly and Bill Henke
James takes aim... The ball does not have a chance ...
See it in the center right in front of the tree?

We did not know about Bill's Anatidaephobia

Did You Know? - Anatidaephobia ? the fear that somewhere, somehow, a duck is watching you. Anatidaephobia is derived from the Greek word "anatidae", meaning ducks, geese or swans and "phobos" meaning fear.

"Yo! Holly! Bill! Did you bring me anything to eat????"

Golf With Holly and Bill Henke
These guys really quacked us up

Did You Know? - Most ducks are omnivorous, but some are primarily herbivores and others (such as sea ducks and mergansers) are mostly carnivorous. Plants eaten include those commonly available in wetlands such as seeds, aquatic grasses, and submerged pond weeds. Animals eaten include invertebrates, fish eggs, and fish. Many duck species switch from a diet of mostly plants to a diet of invertebrates just prior to breeding, which may help them acquire sufficient energy for reproduction. Young ducks eat primarily invertebrates.

Bill is almost over his Anatidaephobia - He attempts eye contact with the ducks

A mighty strike it is.... He is trying for an Albatorss... Emphasis on "trying"

Golf With Holly and Bill Henke
Bill shows us his new swing.... Interesting

Did You Know? - The term "albatross" means scoring three under par (-3) (the albatross being one of the largest birds); also called a double eagle in the U.S. This is an extremely rare score, and occurs most commonly on par-fives with a strong drive and a holed approach shot.

Holes in one on par-four holes (generally short ones) are also albatrosses. The first famous albatross was made by Gene Sarazen in 1935 on the 15th hole at Augusta National Golf Club during the final round of the Masters Tournament.

The double eagle vaulted him into a tie for first place and forced a playoff, which he won the next day. The sportswriters of the day termed it "the shot heard round the world." Albatrosses are much rarer than par 3 holes in one; the odds are estimated at one in 1,000,000 while the odds of a hole-in-one are around one in 3,700 to one in 12,500, depending on the hole and on skill.

James got the "Emergency Call" - Lisa saw a snake in the back yard... St. James has a job to do!

Did You Know? - St. Patrick is also credited with driving the snakes out of Ireland. There were probably no snakes in Ireland for him to drive out, and it is very likely that the story was meant to be symbolic. Since he converted the heathen, the snakes are thought to stand for the pagan beliefs or evil.

James shall ne known as St James The Snake Slayer
