Golf is a great game. There are millions of players around the world and they all speak the same language as far as the game is concerned. Driving the ball, putting, chipping or landing in the sand bunker may be all said differently in various countries but it all relates in the same way… delight, anger or frustration on how the day is going!
I remember starting out as a youngster, eager to emulate the professional golfers of the day and hoping to join the pro tour someday. Every stroke I was able to shave off made me feel like a conquering hero. My first hole in one was very was very much like my other very first time…exciting!
Buying our first new set of golf clubs became a heavily mapped out campaign, filled with the strategies of how each club we would considering buying would improve our game just a little bit more. Even now, years later, every new club bought brings more hope for an improved game. Golf is a never-ending cycle of new golf clubs, new strategies, new techniques and new found thrills every time we plant our golf cleats on a new golf course.
And, of course, everyone who takes up the game of golf imagines the possibility of becoming a professional golfer, winning golf tournaments and making money at a game we all love so much. Not everyone can do it of course, but the hope was always there. And that is the great thing about golf… there is always tomorrow.
