Golf Art of Bear Huff
This golf art came about when Sonia posted a photograph of her son Bear Huff on my Facebook page . This is what she said “This is my son playing in the World Jr Masters Golf Tournament in Las Vegas, NV last year at 9 years old. Bear has been playing golf since he was 1 1/2 and in tournaments since he was 4.” He began his love of the game from watching his biggest fan and coach…his Daddy!

A very little about golf

In Nascar racing a “bump and run” is when a car from behind bumps intentionally the car in front of him (like a police pit maneuver) and then passes him by. Back to golf. The “bump and run” is, unlike a standard chip shot, where you want to carry the fringe of the green (that’s the hairy stuff around the green’s edge,), the goal with the bump-and-run is to get the ball to bounce a few times short of the green and roll to the hole.
