Fore!! (I guess?!)

For any of you who don't know, Mulligan is a golfer (Like father, like son, I think they say). Before he could walk, Ace taught him how to hold and swing a golf club. He would not take a step, but he would stand there and swing a plastic golf club (Wal-Mart or Toys R Us $5. We've been through 3 sets). Anyway, since he got the walking thing down, he has really taken off on the whole golf thing. When he cries, all we say is "Mulli, show me your golf swing!" He stops crying and swings his arms as if he had a club. I would go as far as saying he's obsessed with it, but Ace believes our little guy is the next Tiger Woods. Sure he is.

Well, today I was just going about my own business when I noticed he had retrieved his "First Golf Club" (the one we bought him to use when he was sitting down...) and some of Gimme's kitchen toys. I had no idea what he was doing until I stopped to watch him carefully. I wish like crazy I would have had the video camera going, but I didn't, so here's what I could capture in photos:
He is teeing up.....

With a tomato on top of a "tea" cup turned upside down.

The best part about this is, he was actually hitting the tomato pretty far.

Watch out Tiger!

Very impressive, I have to admit! If he's truly passionate about it, I wouldn't doubt he could top Tiger Woods!
