DS4J release - Golf

I remember my Dad had a very short-lived golfing hobby when I was still very young.  My younger sister and I still recount (again last week!!) the story of how we went with him when he went to play golf during a holiday at a  course where there were a lot of pine trees.  We wanted to pick as many pine cones as we could but of course we had nothing to carry it in. But behind us there were other golfers and in our young minds we suspected that those people are going to take all the pine cones for themselves!  So we proceeded to "hide" as many pine cones as we could along the course. In bushes, little streams, shrubs, you name it.  The next day we went armed with large plastic bags and retrieved as many as we could find (remember)!!  I must have been around 11 years old hahahaha. That was a good memory....

So here is a posthumous, humorous tribute to my Dad's short-lived golfing experience (he really wasn't very good).  Miss my Dad every single day but rejoice that we will meet again in heaven.  He would have loved this.

 I added some glossy accents to the clubs for shine and a little dimension:

I used the sketch from Happy Little Stampers as my inspiration:
