Getting Back in the Game with Adidas Golf
Golfing is an excellent way to workout in the Spring/Summer and sporting cute golf gear just adds to the fun. Check out these stylish new looks from Adidas Golf.
In my final semester of undergrad (about ten years ago), I ended up with just one required course left to graduate. To stay on my parent’s health insurance, however, I needed to be taking a full course load.
So what did I do? I packed that schedule to the brim with hard-hitting classes. You know, stuff like oil painting, yoga, kickboxing, and golf — balancing out my advanced reporting work.
My dad was thrilled. As an avid golfer, he’s been trying to get my sister and I out on the links with him for ages. We dabbled here and there, enjoying the privilege of getting to drive the golf cart and ordering treats from the snack bar, but we never really learned to play.
When he heard I was taking a golf class, my dad immediately signed me up for lessons and purchased an affordable pair of pink women’s golf clubs. “Just want to make sure you pass your class!” he said.
I did, and I ended up liking it too. What at first seemed to be too leisurely of a sport for me and a bit intimidating, turned out to be a lot of fun once I learned a few key points.
I started playing a few times a month with him and my grandparents, or as they’re known by their screen names: par4mebogey4u and oneputtpaula. Subtle, right? As you can see, golf is not just a hobby in my family, it’s a way of life.
When I moved to L.A. after graduation, my game fell by the wayside. There aren’t a ton of places to golf near me that aren’t either exclusive or extremely expensive. So when Adidas Golf approached me recently to get back in the game and check out their new line of women’s golf gear, I jumped at the opportunity.
As I say frequently, the best workouts don’t feel like work. Activities that get me outdoors and moving my body, while having fun at the same time, are my favorite way to stay fit.
Even if my golf game is a little rusty, I’m just happy to enjoy the lovely Spring weather and reap some health benefits at the same time.
Over the next three months, I’ll be brushing up on my skills over at South Hills Country Club in West Covina, which as it turns out is only about a half an hour away from my house (without traffic, of course).
Adidas set me up with an awesome golf pro, Kyle Mendoza, who has already progressed me back from grounders to drives.
Now if only they were going straight, I’d be back in business. Baby steps, though.
I’ll be sharing my journey here on the blog and my social media accounts with tips for anyone who is interested in taking up the game or just checking out the fit fashion. Because let’s be honest, the fit fashion is half the fun!
