I certainly agree with Melissa! I can see my son out there with his son in a few years doing the same. David loves to golf and my first little bear I bought for Joshua had a golf club attached to it...LOL! Wonderful! :)

Alisha, I came here to comment on this shot, but got caught by "Connection of the Heart".

This is a great use of silhouette. And the greens are fantastic! Don't see that too often. This really speaks of connection as well. Wonderful!!
