    It always feels good when one can produce the maximum is gratifying to ones self.

    Actually, it sounds more like sailing.

    Frazz, you were swimming. How could you be on fire.

    I’ve known amateur sports car racers who sound like that.

    Well, if he’d been swimming in the Cuyahoga River in 1969… http://time.com/3921976/cuyahoga-fire/

    Most golfers know what it feels like to hit “that shot that keeps you coming back”. (Most, not all — there are some pretty bad golfers out there.) For some of us, you get maybe one a round, one that’s “struck pure”. It’s a good feeling, and every golfer wants to have that feeling again. It’s what makes the game enjoyable.

    I look at it this way: If Max Scherzer were to throw most of us 50 pitches, we wouldn’t make solid contact with any of them. If LeBron James took any of us mortals on in a game of one-on-one, we wouldn’t score a single point and couldn’t stop him from scoring, ever. In golf, though, you can sometimes hit a “perfect” shot. And even if you were playing in a foursome with Spieth, McIlroy, and DJ, you might hit one so good that none of them, playing from the same spot, could play a shot as good as yours. And that’s the one you talk about, as Caulfield is telling us.

    Wonder how long it will take for someone to bring up that “golf is not a sport” thing. I know everyone is entitled to their opinion, but in my book, making that argument is a real quick way to look like an imbecile.

    Ping pong players get more of a work out than a walk spoiled (golf) but there are ways to make it more athletic. Including no caddies, golfer carries the club bag, and running from hole to hole would pep it up so it would be more than just care in aiming.

    I’m with you on that, especially in an era when much less athletic activities get treated like sports.

    Well, that didn’t take long.

    The world will take note that anyone can win the US Open, so long as they have decent vision. Because all there is to golf is “care in aiming.”

    That’s what my mom did until her 70’s. Then she dislocated her hip and knee, so she had to use a cart. Finally, her golfing buddies began to die off (literally) so now she swims an hour a day.

    The junior college was humbling for me. I thought I was hot stuff because the public schools were easy. I thought study didn’t even require books. Just a good attitude. Then I discovered what real study was all about!

    I thought it was important to look sharp for class. In our public school you were segregated depending on whether your parents cared for you. One of the biggest clues was your clothing. You come in with $1.50 K-Mart shoes and your pants are too short, and the admins will nod to each other knowingly. This kid goes into the inferior classes with no books or teaching. His parents won’t notice. Some kids had $100 Adidas basketball sneakers. Top of the line. Pro-style. This kid will get a teacher and a book.
