FC: The Boy Who Learned To Golf By: Matte Landau For Ages 7-9

1: Once there was a little boy named Henry. He loved school, but didn't like sports very much. There was a bully at Henry's school, who was good at lots of sports. The bully made fun of Henry. Henry ran home to his mommy and told her what had happened. She said he was good at lots of things the bully was not good at. Henry thought about it. “But not sports.” he said. Just then, Henry's grandpa Jakob walked by and heard what Henry was saying. “You should learn to golf, Henry,” he said excitedly,

2: “I can teach you.” Henry decided that would be okay. So they went out to the backyard with two golf clubs and a little white ball. Henry grabbed a club and started swinging, but Grandpa Jakob said, “Whoa there! Hold your horses! You have to learn the rules first.” “Rules?” Henry asked. “Yes, of course there are rules!” Grandpa Jakob said, “You can only go one person at a time. Oh, and you can't move the ball with your hand.” Henry listened eagerly as Grandpa Jakob continued teaching him all about golf, and about how he used to golf with some of the greatest golfers in the world, back when he was a young man.” “I can teach you.” Henry decided that would be okay. So they went out to the backyard with two golf clubs and a little white ball. Henry grabbed a club and started swinging, but Grandpa Jakob said, “Whoa there! Hold your horses! You have to learn the rules first.” “Rules?” Henry asked. “Yes, of course there are rules!” Grandpa Jakob said, “You can only go one person at a time. Oh, and you can't move the ball with your hand.” Henry listened eagerly as Grandpa Jakob continued teaching him all about golf, and about how he used to golf with some of the greatest golfers in the world, back when he was a young man.”

3: Henry practiced every single day for weeks. Then, on a Monday morning, the bully strutted into PE and gave Henry a glare, then walked off with his friends, laughing. Henry followed, and said, “Bully. I'm not scared of you, because I can beat you in a game of golf!” “Golf?” The bully sneered, “fine. Lets play some golf. Saturday morning at 10.” | “I'll be there,” Henry replied, and walked off. Saturday morning came all to quickly, and they were off to the course. Along followed a crowd. Many of the bullies friends, a few kids from school who were curious, and Grandpa Jakob.

4: The pair started on the first hole, and it remained a close game. Then, up came the ninth hole, the last one. The bully took a huge swing and his ball went into the pond. The crowd held their breath as Henry looked towards the hole, then down at his ball. He raised his club gently, and then drove the ball long and hard.

5: It sailed right down the hill, then up the next one. It rolled slower and slower as it neared the hole, then dropped in with a plunk. The crowd cheered and the bully walked off with his friends, mad that he had been beaten.

6: The moral of the story is: Don't be a bully because your bigger,because deep down you are also that weak!
