Look Out, Annika

My brother-in-law is an avid golfer. He spends most weekends on the courses that abound in our area. Imagine the thrill he had when he saw one of his granddaughters fooling around with some play golf clubs and decided that she had a "natural" swing!

Kathryn loves sports of all kinds and is quite athletic, so of course "Opa" encouraged the idea of sending her to a summer golf camp for youngsters. He even bought her a set of her very own golf clubs to use.

The picture shows our five year old Annika wanna-be tee-ing off, hollering "fore"! The last day of golf camp, he served as her caddy for the big tournament, just busting his buttons with pride. Kathryn did very well, considering that she never played golf before that week, but she is also VERY competitive and not happy to settle for a ribbon instead of a trophy.

"If I had better clubs, I would have won the trophy," she informed him. Heh-heh. Be careful what you wish for, Opa!

too cute! the Casserole children were given golf clubs and encouragement early, too. The LH plays as often as he can and hopes his trial is continued today so he can hit the links tomorrow.
I'm not sure you can buy better golf clubs for a lil kid. I recall searching for better clubs with no luck. Love the pink skirt and tiny glove she's wearing!

That is so cute! I love her rationale and love that her athletic inclinations are being encouraged. Go Kathryn!

She is adorable! Tough but adorable.

I have often told my dd she would make a great trial lawyer -- the opposition would be likely to underestimate her tiny blond self (think Reese Witherspoon) and then she would open her mouth and proceed to demolish their case. LOoks like you have a similar one in the making.
