Two young boys playing golf.

An Honest Golfer

About four or five years ago I was standing in a ticket line at LAX, and a fellow in a line parallel to mine had a golf bag slung over his shoulder. Since the line was long and airline ticketing is a slow process at best, we struck up a conversation.

He smiled when I admired his golf bag, and he proudly stated that he was on the PGA Tour. Then he turned to me and asked the question all golfers ask: "Do you play?"

I shook my head, "I used to, when I was younger, but I quit because I wasn't a very good golfer. I consistently shot in the seventies."

He looked at me intently, and with a long low in-take of breath, and said: "The seventies?"

"Yes," I admitted.  I really wasn't very good.

"Consistently?" he asked, with an intent look on his face.

"Almost every hole," I confessed.
