“The great game of golf is a mental game.”
- Hitting out of a bunker into another bunker.
Yeah… your group is awkward and silent because they don’t know how to save the tiny bit of your dignity that is left in you.
- Slicing a tee shot onto the fairway of another hole.
- When you have to declare a lost ball because you give up searching in a deep rough.
Yeah… that ball is a goner, and so is that 5 minutes you spent searching for it.
- Landing in a deep sand trap where you need to defy the laws of physics to punch out.
- Putting on aerated greens.
- Swinging at an impossible lie.
- Playing with an opponent who takes more than two practice swings.
- Missing a putt, then seeing your ball roll into a bunker.
- When you get on green for a birdie, but 3-putt for a bogey.
- Playing in the rain.
And then getting a fever afterwards.
- Trying to read high winds.
- When you make a par.
- Playing as it lies.
- Thinking your ball landed on fairway, but it’s a mushroom.
~oh the disappointment~
- Looking through Golfer’s Digest then looking inside your wallet.
Splurging $200 on that new rescue won’t shave your score anyways.
- Golfers with a bad temper.
- Forgetting your wedge on the previous green.
- People who say golf isn’t a sport.
- Losing a brand new Pro V1 on the first tee shot.
I promise you, look up “I didn’t cheat in golf” in google images.
- Farmer’s tan.
Despite of the self-inflicted stress and disappointment, you still love a good round of golf. Now go enjoy a fresh, cold beer and burger in the clubhouse.
