I often ask myself, do I feel any different on the first tee on days that I shoot 72 and days that I shoot 88? What causes great days, and what causes terrible days?
Ever have days where you feel like you absolutely blew a hole away, yet you have a 6 footer for bogey, and you make it? Every have holes where you feel like you did nothing wrong, and you have a 20 footer for a double bogey?
Golf remains the biggest mind-tease of anything I've ever come across. I've played basketball games in front of thousands of people, and have been more nervous standing over golf shots in front of a group of 3 people. It's the dumbest, stupidest, biggest waste of time, effort, money, and spirit in the world. And it's still the best game in the world.
