‘HELP, I’M AD­DICTED TO GOLF!’

Today's Golfer (UK) - - First Tee -

It’s a never-end­ing ob­ses­sion. I wake up, drive to work, get my emails sorted and then make a few daily calls. Then it’s time to stop, take out my put­ter and make a few strokes. This hap­pens a lot through­out my work­ing day. It’s my med­i­ca­tion and med­i­ta­tion all rolled into one. I will play a round and if I am happy, great. It’s time to go home, re­lax and watch the pros on TV. But, if I am not happy with how I played, I am back on the driv­ing range iron­ing out what I have done wrong. I tweak my swing ac­cord­ing to the lat­est Youtube videos and pray it pro­duces a soft fade. And here lies the prob­lem; I very rarely feel sat­is­fied with my golf. I can play +5 over 18 and then go out the next week and play +15 through the first three holes (I ex­ag­ger­ate a lit­tle). That is why I think I am ad­dicted to this beautiful game. I hope there are oth­ers out there that have golf per­ma­nently on the brain. Per­haps a Golfers Anony­mous meet­ing could be ar­ranged?
