and why it’s the most frustating game on earth!
First tee yesterday after work…picture the scene…audience of about six people watching from the clubhouse – I hit the ball cleanly and straight. Wow. Second shot and I’m on the edge of the bunker…it was all downhill from there.
Second tee – an iron shot and I’m just at side of the green…finish with a bogey.
Third tee – eek – rubbish all the way!
Fourth tee – bad, bad, bad
Fifth – repeat of fourth
Sixth – cracking tee shot with the trusty 5-wood straight down the fairway
Seventh – repeat of sixth but instead of straight down the fairway – I hit it out the back of the green
Eighth – really awful to the point where I take an “f-it” shot with a seven iron from the fairway and find the green…
Ninth – awful…I talked myself into hitting the same shot that one of my fellow players had just hit…
Will I give up? No, not a chance. I’ll be out there again as soon as possible.
