Sunday was a big day for American leaders, Not the American political leaders, American leaders in Golf, the Ryder’s Cup and Sunday the cup has been gladly placed back in the Americans hands. Now, if you folks know anything about golf you know it is really not a game it is an obsession. It is the only thing I know of that can get folks to take the abuses it has to offer each day and get folks to gladly come back day after day after day, oh, other than Wall Street.
Sunday I had the luxury of playing 18 holes of golf, OR should I say, it played me. If you had a relationship that denied you as much pleasure as golf does most of the time, you would probably leave it. But for some reason folks come back to it all the time. It is a good thing that I am a humorist . . . That way when folks watch me golf I can tell them it is part of my shtick. I did have ONE great shot, in ummm . . . 100 shots in the round, Ummmhuh… I just gave away my score. Of course everyone knows that golfers lie by 5-10 shots anyway, but boy was it a doosey!
Ben Hogan said that “Golf is about getting that one shot in a round, the shot you line up and aim for and you actually get the result you were looking for that is what keeps golfers coming back every time.”
