You dont have to be a bad golfer to be a frustrated golfer you simply have to be a golfer. The only people that are not frustrated golfers are those that dont play. Anybody and everybody who plays the game will indeed be humbled and frustrated by it, even the best players on the planet.
When it comes to golf, frustration is not just possible or probable, it is, in fact, unavoidable and inevitable. Being classified as a frustrated golfer, however, is in no way a dubious distinction. It is not an admission of inferiority but only an admission of being human.
The GREAT GOLF PARADOX: Theres probably no game more difficult to master and yet no game more enjoyable when you do, even if only for a fleeting moment. It can, at times, embarrass, humiliate, humble, infuriate, and frustrate us without mercy but in spite of that, most who play love the game and many are downright fanatical about it.
Golf may best be described as a game of opposites. You hit down to make the ball go up. You swing left and the ball goes right. You swing right and the ball goes left. When your body is limber you use stiff shafts. When your body is stiff you use limber shafts. The lowest score wins and the winner buys the drinks. It is also the only game I know of that can be so FRUSTRATING one moment and yet so FUN the next.
Golf is indeed a game but not only a game. To its dedicated and devoted followers it is much more than that. It is in part a religion, a vice, an obsession, a passion, an affliction, a mystery, and an enigma. It can at times frustrate one beyond belief but in the blink of an eye it can also offer up unbridled joy like nothing else.
G.O.L.F. can often seem like the GREATEST OF LIFES FRUSTRATIONS but it can also be a GAME OF LIMITLESS FUN. It is, in my humble opinion, still THE greatest game the good Lord ever created.
Read about yourself or someone you know. If youre a golfer you are most likely mentioned, described, or pictured many times in this book. If you are a non-golfer but know a golfer(s), you will enjoy reading about them and laughing at them over and over within these pages.
