Golf is all about fun, right? Well, it does take some basic skills in order for it to be fun. I have a love/hate relationship with this mind-racking sport. I thought I’d introduce Tatum to it formally with a lesson since it can appear easy! I think she realizes appearance is deceiving. It is H.A.R.D So, PGA Golf store and Tim gave her a formal lesson.

Hooray! I’m sooooo excited for you and proud of you, Tatum; you earned it!
