The other day I tried golf for the first time.
Let’s just say the professionals make it look a lot easier than it is.
Most people have tried crazy golf but that’s hardly the same thing.
We weren’t even playing proper golf under the great big sky, but virtual golf in an underground bar.
The clubs and balls were very real though.
Twisting the body into spring while swinging a pound of metal around your head is not a natural movement.
Then trying to unwind and hit a tiny ball while not bludgeoning yourself or some innocent bystander in the head is virtually impossible.
At least for the first few strokes.
The concentration required to produce anything other than property damage when wielding a golf club makes one realize why people spend so long trying to master it.
And what a great excuse to spend the day walking outside.
