Golfing With Dufus
Went golfing yesterday morning with my son. I say golfing but it's really hitting a golf ball into a huge video screen. It's just not the same as the real thing. But with several feet of snow on the ground here, it's the only option...unless I go golfing with a snow shovel.
So the way it works is you get to choose from a number of courses, ranked in order of difficulty. I think I must have accidentally chosen the most difficult course there was. It was called Devil's Island. The name should have been my first clue. I tell you if this course exists in real life I'm never going there. I came away with a score of 140...my worst game ever.
Maybe I lacked the drive.
After missed shots and mulligans I was feeling pretty green.
To my mind this was not a fair way to play golf.
It was downright rough.
In fact, I was so ticked off being around me was a real hazard.
It was as if I had a chip on my shoulder.
But I refused to lie down.
However, the exertion I put into hitting that damn ball just about gave me a stroke.
Well it gave me ten actually, and that was just the first hole.
But I haven't given up on my golf game. Nope. In fact, I'm going back today.
I wonder if there's a course called Birdie Heaven?
