You would think that ambulances would just sit and wait in golf course parking lots every day.
Think about it … people swinging metal sticks … which propel a rock-hard ball at great speeds … while standing next to each other … and driving golf cars up and down hills with these balls flying around.
Then, add alcohol into the mix. And that’s not even considering the lack of control of most players. Even very good players are capable of wild and crazy shots.
How can it work?
Because - for the most part - golfers have common sense.
Seriously … if they didn’t … golf wouldn’t work.
Sometimes when I go to work in the morning, I drive through the town of Excelsior. And most of the time, I see people just walking through stop signs without even looking. They think stop signs are just for cars.
Maybe pedestrians are supposed to have the right of way. However, is it worth risking your life over a rule?
I see more people than ever pretending that they live in la-la land rather than reality.
These same people loved watching Yogi Bear cartoons so much that they go out to Yellowstone (Jellystone) to play with the bears.
That doesn’t always work out so well.
Dealing with reality is a good thing. Not learning to deal with reality leads to walking in front of cars and playing with bears.
Golf: hit it … find it … deal with it. Hit it again … find it … deal with it.
I wish everyone played golf.
