Golf..... we love it and hate it all at the same time...no??...LOL:bigsmile:p
About a week and a half ago, one of our foursome has been playing miserably as of late. Normally about a 6 or 7 handicapper, he was shooting well into a high 80s pace... and losing his 'ARSS' to the rest of us.
When we reached the 14th green, it became apparent to him that he was about to lose some more money to one of us...again. Well, he just picked up his ball and stormed off, swearing off golf for ever... 'Never, Ever again!!' was his exact words.
Didn't hear from him and didn't try to call him to see if he was up to playing with us again for about a week. Then this past Sunday I called him to let him know that we would be going out to play a round..... he sounded thrilled to hear from me and was very, very enthusiastic about playing.
So we got him back out to the course and all seemed fine....... until..... I birdied the first hole, got the greenie and skin on the second hole, and promptly won the fourth as well.... he was down $100 in only four holes!! We could tell that he was starting to get red in the face again... slightly, but we could tell.
Then we get to that same 14th hole again, by this time he had managed to win a couple skins and had recouped some of his $$, but was still down $120 bucks. He hit a great drive and the rest of us all were in some sort of trouble off the tee... so none of the rest of us hit the green in regulation and that gave him an opportunity to shave $30 or $60 off his losings. He promptly pushes hi second shot to the right, hits a tree branch, drops about 30 yards short of the green, pitches his third shot at the flag almost holing out, but a little hard and it goes completely off the back of the green, and then he chunks his fourth and barely gets back on the green...LOL:bigsmile: .... well the temper tantrum starts again... 'Never, Ever Again!!!' he started screaming, picks up his ball but atleast does stick around to see if he had to pay someone for the skin. Thank goodness we all bogied!
So he waves bye and walks off the course again... 'Never, Ever Again!!' is what we are hearing as he walks off the course towards the parking lot... Vowing to quit golf for good this time...
I'll be calling him today to golf with us, and I truly think he'll be back out with us even despite his Vow of golf celibacy...LOL :p:bigsmile:
