Golf: a game of errors
Many people don’t like golf, and honestly, I can’t blame them for that. The game of golf IS a slow one. But golf is also an incredibly difficult, strategic game that appears to be much, much easier than it actually is.
In actuality, the winner of a golf tournament is (99% of the time) the one that makes the least amount of mistakes. Never has somebody played a perfect round of golf. Never.
This fact is what keeps people playing. The shot they should have had, that right there is what keeps them coming back. The pure frustration of just not being able to do what you want it to is aggravating, while the triumph of hitting a perfect shot is addictive.
This year’s varsity golf team is led by returning WSL Champs Tyler Zaentz and Jeff Roseth, two incredible players who are looking to repeat their winning ways this season. The team has struggled to obtain players, many going off to play sports such as baseball, tennis, and track, but still managed to field a 7 man team, 6 of which play at a match.
Despite the slowness of the game, I encourage my readers to head out to watch a match sometime this year, and support the team. A great number of people do not realize that these players put in 2 to 3 hours every day practicing, completely committed to the team. So why not? Just a couple hours of your life. Take a drive out to one of the scenic courses and watch the players do what they do best.
