And People Think Golf is Fun Because....?
Back in the day when I was in college, my major was Physical Education. One of the required courses was g..., g..., gol..., golf. ugh! Now...I had never played golf, but my gut reaction was that I didn't like the game.
When registering for the last semester courses in my senior year, Golf was looming over my head. I had put it off as long as I could. No golf, no graduation!!! I implored my advisor, "please, please...I don't want to take that course, I'll do anything, anything--write a paper, take two other courses in its place, pay you". I pleaded. I begged. I whined. I almost cried.
All to no avail. It was, "take the course or don't graduate".
So on the first day at the golf course, I approaced the tee-off spot (see, I don't even know what it's called), started shaking, placed my rubber tee on the spot, took the stance, almost cried, prayed that the rest of my class would stop watching me, and swung. I connected! It was a thing of beauty. It felt awesome. I followed through just like you're supposed to. "Well, that wasn't so bad", I thought. Until I looked down. Right where I put the tee sat the ball and right where the ball should have gone went the tee. As my classmates laughed, I died a thousand deaths. (I can hear you laughing too. STOP IT!)
Since that course I have never set foot on a golf course.
Except, of course, for minature golf--at which I am equally bad.
Jessica, Lauren, Jacob and I went golfing today. It was actually fun. I'm glad it's over.
I'm still wondering, people think golf is fun because.........?
