  • Mixing golf and romance

    Love and golf are often linked. Yeah, I’ve heard all those stories of guys who are always out playing golf with the guys, leaving their forlorn and neglected wives or girlfriends at home.
    More often, the game of golf can be the cement that holds a marriage together. It has for mine.
    When my husband, Gene, and I met at Syracuse University, he had been playing golf since he was 8 and had a single digit handicap. As I got to know him and his Phi Kappa Psi brothers, I became the beer runner for their fraternity golf matches. Basically, I became a golf groupie.
