@Joe Nation,
It's a stupid game all right! Not many can master it even with years of practice.

@cicerone imposter,
That is, of course, why someone keeps playing.
In the words of Tiger Woods at the peak of his career when asked why he practices "To get better."

@Joe Nation,
The dream of repeating one perfect shot can keep you playing for years.

Catching that moment when everything other than the 'snick' of the ball is completely silent.

It's amazing.

@ehBeth,
That's true; I've often thought I played a good game of golf when I had a very good shot out of the 18 holes played - even when my score was high!

I guess I gotta tell yez…this morning I went out to the course and was filled with confidence. I was positive I would come close to shooting my age (although my best score to date is a 77). Played three holes without hitting even one decent shot…double bogie on all three…and I decided to excuse myself from the group. I think I may take the week off…try to get my head back in order. Hey, Tiger did it, no reason why I shouldn’t.

My handicap has gone up to 20…the highest it has been in probably 10 years or more. I am not a happy camper.

@Frank Apisa,
J.D. Salinger would tell you not to aim so much.

The subject of that comment was the sport of marbles, but the idea, the feeling, is still the same.

Golf is still the most difficult sport I ever attempted.

Marathoning, while difficult to do, only drives you crazy for five hours a year.
