Fooooooooooore!

Fooooooooooore!

Today was the first sunny day in November. So anyone who could headed outdoors. This is Ulf. A keen golfer. He was practising his chipping technique in Handen when I spotted him. Before letting me take his portrait, he wanted to know where the photo might end up. One reason is perhaps that it is illegal to practise golf where we met! He told me about a previous encounter where a dad, out playing soccer with his kids started yelling about "you can't play golf here" while kicking a football up in the air and going all crazy. Ulf who enjoyes cooking and betting on horses works for the municipality at City Hall. He is a Kart- och mätningsingenjör. Say what? I hear you say. Well, it means that he works with mapping and land registration. Which means that he works outdoors for most of the time. One of the people he works with is the architect Rikard Lundin whom I have photographed before. And he also knew Nina who used to work in a restaurant at City Hall. I'm not sure how good a golfer Ulf is, but how hard can it be to hit that little ball?

He's a bit of a rebel, and I like that. Sometimes you can bend the rules a little without ever hurting a soul. Do you golf Steffe?

Can Ulf golf? Based on your photo tricks, he looks like he swung, swung and swung and still didn't hit the ball! Keep practicing golf, Ulf!

Funny, funky post. When I first retired I played golf every day for several years. Practice does not make perfect, but it helps.

I don't think I could hit that little ball if my life depended on it anymore.

Sounds like you may have tried to hit it yourself a few times, Steffe!

Maybe Ulf could give you some lessons. Nah...

I once worked for a Swede whose name was Mr. Ulf. He too played golf at every opportunity. Must be that all Ulf's come with the golf gene.

Hitting the ball is not difficult, it's making it go where you want it to that poses a challenge!
