Giving up the game

| Golf

Today I had such a terrible round on the course that I've decided once and for all to give up golf. What a completely insane game. My decision is final, and my clubs are on sale for a pretty good discount.

I wouldn't mind an occasional down period, but this has been going on for too long. Frustrating those double and triple bogies, and so few pars. Topped the ball three times and spent a good portion of my time wandering in the trees looking for my ball.

One thing positive is that I didn't get as angry as I would expect, and I took this disastrous day all in stride. Smiling the painful smile of politeness, although inside I was feeling really embarassed at such a terrible score.

It's all relative though, and compared with the rest of the world events it's an insignificant and unimportant speck of nothingness.

Maybe I won't sell my clubs afterall. Will clean them extra well and polish the woods to a shine for the next round of fun and relaxation.
