Golf: It’s a simple game unless it gets to your head. I’ve been playing now for a few years, once or twice a month on average. I’ve taken six group lessons total, with the same guy who keeps it so simple, I refuse to take lessons from anyone else. He breaks it down to stance, grip and swing. And he tells us “If you’re leaving here with 20 things to think about, you’ve made 17 of them up!” I wrote the essay ‘Why Spoil A Good Game of Golf By Keeping Score?’ not long after I began playing. But, I’ve since learned that golf isn’t rocket science. It’s just angles. I’ve added a few updates to that original essay which I hope you’ll enjoy by clicking the link above. If you’re not a golfer, maybe it will entice you to give it a shot. It’s fun and there is NO NEED to keep score, really.
Whatever your sport, I hope you’re playing because you love the activity, the challenge, and the fun. If you get nothing but elevated blood pressure and sudden onset of temper tantrums, then it’s time to consider something new. And, for those of you who’ve read this essay via my feed on LinkedIn’s group Golf 4 Women, I appreciate the LIKES you’ve left me there. Here’s to whatever brings fun into your life…cheers!
