When you think about it, golf is the ideal men's sport. All you do is wander around with your stick, trying to make it into the hole with as few tries as possible, just so you can brag about it with your friends later. :P

I played tons of golf in my lifetime and had 2 holes in one. I always used an extra long driver too. The extra length gave me added distance thus greater pleasure.... :d13:

Golf is definitely a man's sport. So many men around here play golf. It seems like there are courses everywhere. We're right in between two private courses and there's one public one a short drive away. I tried golf. Lord knows I tried. It's frustrating. I can't believe how much I cussed.

When I was 18 I had a summer job at a golf course where my job was to travel around the course writing down scores, getting drinks and laughing at really bad jokes by the men playing golf. I'm convinced there must only be like five women in the world who play this sport!

I've never understood the appeal.  In fact, I think it's almost laughable to call it a "sport."  But, to each one's own.  :huh:

Golf is not unlike Geddys voice and Rush music in general. You either get it or you don't...

I always thought the appeal was being able to drink while you were doing it.

You know, when I saw interview clips of Alex on the golf course, my mind went to exactly this. :laughing guy:

I never bothered with golf because I don't think I have the sort of coordination I would need to be good at it.  I mean, I'm not some clumsy stumblebum or anything, but I could easily see myself struggling just to make a precise hit and launch a good drive.

But when it comes to miniature golf or computer-game golf... I'm there.

I love miniature golf. Truly. I will challenge anyone to a round of putt-putt. And I'm really competitive which is a weird trait to have during miniature golf. Don't question my ability to tap that ball through the windmill blades.
