Dads who want to lure their daughters to golf should try Keri Golf as bait
My eight-year-old daughter likes golf, except when she hits bad shot. Then she hates it.
And if I offer advice? Then she hates me.
If I offer encouragement? She still hates me.
If I so much as breathe after her bad shot? Yep. Hates me. And golf.
So some days it’s hard to lure her out to the course. The promise of ice cream after nine holes is usually effective bait, but not always. Her mom keeps our freezer pretty stocked with ice cream, and my daughter knows she can have some of that without golfing first.
My little girl is, however, a bit of a slave to fashion, not to mention all things pink and various shades of lime green. As luck would have it, I recently discovered a line of extremely trendy, extremely girly, and, well, rather spendy golf accoutrements by Keri Golf. Luckier yet, Keri’s 2007 Bermuda Line is all about pink and various shades of lime green.
Designed by life-long golfer and designer Keri Murschell, the Keri Golf line of bags and accessories is admittedly high-end. The cart bags run $375 and the stand bags $295.
But hey, they are all adorned with nickel-plated hardware and each carries a cute sorority-girl name: Addison, Brooke, Charley, and Lauren, to name a few.
And maybe, just maybe, my daughter won’t be quite so peeved walking to her topped drive if she looks really, really cute doing so (and if I refrain from speaking or breathing for the entire round).
Keri Golf’s Bermuda Line melds girly pink with grassy green for a completely unique look.

It's funny how nowadays we're always trying to seduce kids (especially girls) into doing non-traditional things. Did you ever think that maybe their instincts are correct in some matters?
about things you don't know nothing of.
She's 8, and reads at college entrance
level. I read to her every night before
bed (not that she needs me to read to her).
If I were more traditional, I'd have her
marriage arranged already, I suppose.
Actually, I'm surprised that your type
considers reading to be traditionally appropriate for girls. Doesn't your
(dwindling, shriveled) crowd usually hold
that women shouldn't even go
You're not intellectually capable of understanding my world view; I lost a nail once that was more intelligent that you.
I never implied that you didn't read to her; I was making a larger point. Hey, I bet she's your only child. You're just the type.
Since you're wrong in most every opinion you promulgate, I suppose we're compatible in one regard to at least some small extent.
