A lovely story about golf, exercise and walking

This really nice story comes from the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

Four women in their 80s play golf on a regular basis at Stillwater Country Club. They don’t gamble and they don’t ride. They walk.

Here is a quote from 87-year-old Ruby Kaske:

“Why do I like it? I get to exercise, I guess, and get outside,” said Kaske, who took up golf 40 years ago after her husband, Herman, died. “Exercise keeps you going – sitting around doesn’t help too much. I used to play almost every day. I don’t like to ride. I like to think about (my game) as I’m walking. When I use a cart, I don’t play good at all – much worse than usual.”

And 84-year-old Lorraine Miller added this item:

“If you don’t have a good game, you at least got your walk in.”

As someone who likes the walk, I love it.

  1. They were talking about this story on the 1st tee of the State Women’s Amateur that day, as Rose prepared to tee off. I had the great good pleasure to say: “I edited that story!” I’m glad you saw it and liked it, Jeff.
