Playing golf can get expensive and that is why I don’t play as much as I would like to but when I get the chance I love playing golf. I am average at best as I can usually hover around a score of 90 for 18 holes, and I do experience my fair share of frustration with the game sometimes, but playing gold is just the best way to leave the world behind for a few hours and bond with your friends while forgetting all of your problems and cares. Playing golf is something that can help you relax after a long week and playing golf can also include an added bonus if you find yourself playing a good round. Many golfers such as myself try not to worry too much about scoring well when you are playing golf but at the same time one of the great thrills of playing golf is striking that ball so well that it goes where you want it to do and does the things you hope it will. If you find yourself having an especially good round of golf, and the sun is shining and your friends are with you, then it just adds something to the experience for the day. Like the old saying goes a bad day playing golf is still better than a good day at the office.
When I was young, in high school, and had no responsibilities I was very serious about my golf game and I played at least 5 times a week during the spring, summer, and fall. My varsity letter from high school was in golf and I had given some serious thought to possibly making playing golf my career. I remember spending the summer between my junior and senior years in high school really working very hard on my golf game and seeing for myself if I really was good enough to try a career in golf. In the end I determined that I may have the necessary skills to build on for being a professional golfer but my temperament is definitely not cut out for professional golf. I have a very short fuse and a very bad temper and no matter how hard I tried to control it, when I would make a mistake on the golf course, it would come out and sometimes embarrass me horribly. I tried and tried to control it but it was no use as I realized, after months of improving my play but seeing no improvement in my course demeanor, a career in professional golf just wasn’t for me. So now I play golf for fun and write for a living. Somehow I just don’t feel any calmer about it though.
