I've been fretting about the Star Fort Ladies Golf Association spring tournament. Well, actually, I've been fretting about the pairings. It's a team event and I'm still not entirely recovered from my shoulder surgery. My swing's a bit stiff. I tire easily. I'm not going to make much of a partner.
|Lateral Hazard Drop Options|
The Star Fort Ladies Golf Association annual spring tournament's at hand and I'm readying myself for the contest with a little back yard chipping practice and a review of the ever-mysterious Rules of Golf. I know it's hard to believe that a yearly competition among friends who golf together week after week requires a rules review, but there's always some Eagle-Eye monitoring and I don't want to be disqualified for an unintentional infraction. Take the Rules Quiz: Do you know your drop options in the situation illustrated here?

Sunday was an all-around golf day. I have a long history of slipping out to the golf course on Sunday morning for 9 holes of solitary practice, throwing down another ball, or two or even three to correct a bad shot, try a shot with two or three different clubs, and so I slipped out to the course and played 9 just to give my new shoulder another road test, enjoyed a pleasant Sunday brunch, and then settled down in front of the television and readied myself for what I'd anticipated would be a riveting four-way battle for the Kraft Nabisco Championship. Sunday began with the promise of being the sort of day I generally enjoy, but this Sunday didn't sparkle and fizz.

This isn't about sex. This about money, and market share, and news stand eye appeal, and . . .? What it's not about is golf.
Why am I surprised?
Why don't I subscribe to or even casually read Golf Digest?
