My New Clubs…and Hobby.

As you read, I did finally finish my new set of clubs a couple weeks ago. For those of you that care, here are some specs on them:

-High kick stainless steel shafts, designed to produce higher trajectory shots with added distance.
-1 1/4 inch longer shafts than standard, to allow me to stand taller and get better rotation in my spine.
-Integra forged iron heads. Softer feel, fairly forgiving.
Golf Pride DD2 grips, oversized for my man-hands.
-Irons 5-9, 48 deg. wedge (PW), 52 deg. wedge, 56 deg. wedge, and a 4 hybrid.

I have played with them twice now, and I think tonight I finally started to get a feel for them. The first time, I dug out 75% of my shots because I wasn’t used to the longer clubs. I did lots better tonight, which made me happy inside.

The best part about these clubs though was the fact that I MADE THEM. I mean, I mined the metal out of the mountain and forged them in my kiln….just kidding, but I did put them together and had a blast. In fact, I got so excited about it that I went out and bought my own sander and burr saw so I can make them anytime, anywhere. Who wants a set? I’ll give you a great deal! Seriously!

Pictures coming soon.


About last week…

So I already posted this once, but I’ll post again for those that didn’t get to read it for the 3 hours it was on the blog before being permanently deleted. Last week we went to the concert. The fabulous Tim and Faith concert. We were on the last row of the upper bowl, but they was so amazing that we didn’t mind (plus the tickets were free)!!

Winners Faith Hill Tim McGraw Last row

Darin has been on a country kick ever since. He blasts his own mix CD wherever we go. Poor Jack, doesn’t even like country music and we were singing along yesterday in the car! I bet he will volunteer to drive next time we somewhere, just to control the music! Our favorite song though, you should check it out here!
Then I took off for Park City, leaving Darin to study Physics. While I was learning new ideas for teaching math and science, shopping until my feet hurt, and seeing a new side to the crazy teachers I work with, Darin managed to ace his physics test (I hope), work a lot, and put together his new clubs (which he has yet to report on, I’ll give him a nudge)!

I just finished another two-day class today. Digital Video Class. We just played around on iMovie, which is rather fun. I had to make a short movie, so just ask me to show you Making Milkshakes starring Darin Payne next time we are together! Now if only I could get to work on the hours of video footage I have since we’ve been married, maybe I could really accomplish something!

Birthday Bash!

Hey everyone,
Contrary to popular belief, I DO KNOW it is Nada’s Birthday tomorrow. As a result, I would like to invite you over for some sweet BBQ action…well, okay, it will probably be burgers and dogs, but hey, it will still be tasty. Come on over any time after 5:00. If you will be attending, please RSVP via telephone at 830-8369, or, simply leave a comment under this post. Also, if you would like to bring something along to compliment the meal such as chips, drinks, salad, or whatever, please let me know! Happy Birthday Nada!
