Golf a la Carte


The Bluff National Park Golf Club

We lunched at the Golf Club today;
Of golf cart I got in the way;
It struck me then strongly
How thinking is wrongly,
And shouldn’t belong-ry,
To have such things brought into play:
For walking that ought
To be part of the sport
For fitness support,
Is no longer going to stay,
And torsos that swing
Are the only thing
That, given a fling,
Some exercise getting just may —
While they still enjoy fullest sway,
The rest will just wither away.

    Not a fanatic about it but I enjoy the game . . . er . . . enjoyed; I haven’t played in a few years.

    But, my preference was always walking and carrying my own bag (with my 14-club maximum).

    These days, I only play at the request of friends and since none live near me, no golf for me.

    Anyway, glad you avoided a collision but I wonder why the cart driver wouldn’t have avoided you to begin with.

    How I miss my golf – severe degenration between vertibae Lumber 5 and Spine 1 it exposes nerve L1. At my age I am paying the account of rugby and squash in my younger days. Anyway attending spinal pilates sessions
    and it helps.
