Parker's Golf

We are so proud of Parker! Parker loves golf, it is his sport of choice. We have let him try soccer, basketball, flag football and he continues to want to play golf and practice it and work hard with it. Every summer the South Texas PGA has a summer program for kids ages 7-12 to play tournaments. They are grouped together by age (7-9) & (10-12). Depending on the clinic they attend prior to the season, they play 5 or 9 hold modified (bringing the tees up closer); or they can qualify for the red tees. Parker started his first year, age 8 at 5 hole modified; age 9 moved to 9 hole modified; age 10 5 hole modified. You have to score 8 over par or less for two consecutive tournaments to move up in your division. This was Parker's goal all summer, he accomplished his goal the last to tournaments of the season (Whoo Hooo Park, we are proud of you)!

Parker had been taking lessons once a week for late Spring through July and has improved so much with each week. He coach told him that he would help him get a first place this season, and he did it twice!

I love the very last picture, Parker and Brian walking together. Brian work with Parker and helps him so much. It is just sweet to see them together.
