RENSLOW: The Twelve Days of Christmas (golf edition)

Santa gets in a quick round before the big day.

Merry Christmas everyone! We celebrate a birthday by giving each other presents. Stories are told, laughter is heard, and we enjoy time with friends and family.

Thankfully, it's also golf season, (barring a little white stuff, on occasion). Granted, you have to be properly equipped, but it's not that cold (come on, toughen up) and the local courses drain pretty well.

Holiday songs fill the air and are a large part of the 'Christmas spirit'. Hmmm…if only we had golf song to inspire both the spirit of giving and the spirit of playing. We could enjoy the holiday and ready ourselves for that next round of golf.

Again, Get Into Golf is here to help. Back by popular demand is the "12 Days of Christmas" golf style. Hum a few bars (as best you can) and give these lyrics a try.

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me… a golf cart with HDTV.

On the second day of Christmas my true love gave to me… two pints of ale and a golf cart with HDTV.
