Grandpa Gil Golfing


Best guess: some time in the late seventies or early eighties, give or take a decade.

Pop it in, Grandpa!

    Check out his perfect grip!! Checkout the straight left arm!! And, checkout the crooked smile with straight teeth. All of this the mark of determined optimism…….ready for:

    “A good walk, spoiled!!”.

    may hours together on the ole waialae links some of my fondest memories of time with ole gil. he’s holding a pitching wedge i was to inherit as he moved up into new clubs, haig ultras if memory serves. a club i used to leave many a ball in the sand for a second try, only later realizing the benefits of a sand rather than pitching wedge.

    so, where did the pic come from??? he sure looks good doesn’t he? i hadn’t tested his patience yet it would seem.

    Photo came from the “Utility Room Archives”, graciously scanned by Jonny’s Holly.
