Read the poem “Like the Pros” and answer the following questions.
1. It goes up, it goes down.
I try to get it to where it needs to
Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn’t.
On my own, with the school team
With my dad, anyone who is willing.
3. My goal
is to make it big.
To play with the big names.
The big name golfers.
4. Each time I play I imagine
Maybe Pebble Beach or Augusta.
Wherever the golf tour
Anytime there’s one on television, I watch it.
it. And watch it later when I can.
6. I watch how the pros do it.
How they stand, swing, putt
Even how they walk. Everything.
7. I watch how they hold their bodies after they swing.
How they squat
to look from the ball
to the hole.
How they rock back and forth right
before hitting the ball
8. I take it all in.
Remember every little thing I saw
And try to do the same when I play.
9. Each time I play or practice
, I’m a pro.
I hit is on one of the most famous
greens of all.
As often as I can, with whomever I can.
