Why I Love Golf: Reasons 1 through 7

Funny thing, golf. Four hours or so of ecstasy and agony interspersed with exclamations along the lines of:

  • Dammit!
  • Ooh, that'll play.
  • What the —?
  • Now that felt good.
  • Oh, come on!

Gotta love the game.

Here are some of my reasons why I'm a golf-adorer.

#1

That feeling when you "pure" it off the tee.

#2

The sound of a long putt clinking into the bottom of the cup.

#3

The process of successfully figuring out why you just pulled the bejeebers out of the ball when you've been pushing it all day.

#4

Driving the cart.

#5

Riding in the cart with a friend.

#6

Changing your mind in the woods, when you decide that rather than trying to fly the ball over a wall of oak trees it makes more sense to drill it out under the branches.

#7

The feel of a new cap.
