I play [golf] with friends sometimes, but there are never friendly games.
One way to break up any kind of tension is good deep breathing.
It is nothing new or original to say that golf is played one stroke at a time. But it took me many years to realize it.
The most rewarding things you do in life are often the ones that look like they cannot be done.
I never hit a shot, not even in practice, without having a very sharp, in-focus picture of it in my head. First I see the ball where I want it to finish, nice and white and sitting up high on the bright green grass. Then the scene quickly changes, and I see the ball going there: its path, trajectory, and shape, even its behavior on landing. Then there is a sort of fade-out, and the next scene shows me making the kind of swing that will turn the previous images into reality.
How can they beat me? I've been struck by lightning, had two back operations, and been divorced twice.
I had to shake the spot cause the game got crowded
I'm devoted and quote it, I'm rowdy and bout it
A No Limit Soldier, and happy to shout it.
