Furthermore, when watching golf I hate to see anyone lose as I know what it’s like to miss short putts, leave your ball in a bunker or slice one into the lake. I can only imagine what it’s like to do those things when playing for lots of money. I can still want a particular golfer or golfers to win an event but knowing that if they don’t, whoever does win, deserves it. It’s a tough game. I don’t feel as if I ever really get the heartache from a loss like other sports (Rugby, AFL, Football) but I still get the rush watching a great golfer play a wonderful shot or sinking a long putt myself!
Golf is great, while others (a friend of mine on Saturday) say it’s evil. I often proclaim it’s all I’ll ever follow and do in the sporting realm from now on, but that’s not true. I will still go back to watch Europeans dive and destroy my country’s hope in a World Cup final. I will persist in watching my country perform terribly in a World Cup quarter final and I will continue to watch my AFL team lose in the final kick of the game.
Why? ‘Cause it makes me love golf even more.
