The beauty of golf, however, meant that I decided to go out again a day or two later A year and a couple months later, I am completely addicted to golf.

Fly fishing is a very attractive sport to some. However to others, it’s a complete brainless waist of time. Although I don’t fish, I was able to catch a lot of the subtle analogies in the book and later in the movie about where life meets fly fishing.

Nick Trevino Smith English – 1301 The Hill Towards the end of my sophomore year, my friend Joey and I wanted to have a new experience like none other.

Let’s just say that my decision to drive home that night would always remind me of what I did for my 2007 4th of July.

It was either sleep on the couch or get in my car and drive home to my very comfortable bed, drunk.

The Green lights eternal burning represents Gatsby’s longing for being rich. To him, Daisy portrays the best treasure he could have ever obtain, and everything he became, he did for her. Gatsby always had all his lights on, his parties happened without fail. Nick narrates, “It was when curiosity about Gatsby was at its highest that the lights in his house failed to go on one Saturday night.” (Fitzgerald 113) Fitzgerald uses the lack of light to show something is wrong, or has changed Gatsby.
Selling their clubs at the top of the price category, Callaway provides the market with clubs that are proven to deliver skill and forgiveness, thus making the overall golfing experience better for the average person. This is key to the company’s success as golf is has become increasingly difficult and a time suck for people learning the difficult game. While Callaway has always been on the forefront of innovation, the gap between them and other manufacturers is closing (Badenhausen, 2012). Companies like Nike Golf and Taylor Made-adidas have crowded the once small and personalized world of golf equipment and apparel. The company must define the issues concerning their loss of market share and identify solutions to gain their share, and additional shares, back moving forward.
We still have drag races and hot rods. Girls and boys still have the double standard but we get to do whatever we want with our lives, not what the tradition is. Girls can go into any career boys can get into and we have the same rights anyone else has.

After we paid the fee, we entered on a dark area where a staff explained the mechanics and how to operate the equipment.
