The golf lesson was a slamming success with the superkid. We even managed to hit a couple of balls, one of mine must have made 50 meters, I just couldn't exactly track in which direction. For reference, the pro did about 240 easily.
The superkid loved it. Fortunately the weather cleared halfway the afternoon and it wasn't raining any more when we walked there. Unfortunately I had miscalculated the time it would take to walk two kilometers.. Google maps had erroneously told me that if we took the long route of 5 km that would take 9 minutes to walk. Windows Live sent me in completely the other direction. None of the walking tracks between here and the golf course are even on there. I knew that it would be around 2 kilometers taking the short way, calculating with the sk's lack of exercise I went with Google maps estimate of 9 minutes. We left 20 minutes ahead of time. Only when I looked at my clock 10 minutes later, I realized Google maps had been way off, and 9 minutes might be what it would take to travel a distance of 5 kms by bike, not foot, unless you are a very fast runner. That's what I get for following directions.
