The first time I went golfing was back in 2002 and I sucked. I opened the first hole with a course record five whiffs. The following day I tried my luck at the driving range. While I did a little better, I managed to hit a ball over the protective 12-story net, into a neighboring used car lot, and off about three cars (unconfirmed).
Perhaps the game doesn’t have enough action. Perhaps it requires too much skill. Perhaps I just suck at it. Whatever the case may be I tend to avoid real golf with drivers and the other named clubs, and play 18 holes with a putter instead.
