Why I Gave Up Golf

My back hurt, oh, yeah, I also sucked.

Back pain is treatable, my persistent slice wasn't.

There is often great wisdom in knowing when to quit.

I gave up golf much earlier. I grew up living two blocks away from a municipal golf course and often wandered over to their clubhouse to buy a soda when I'd managed to accumulate a few bits of change (it was the nearest place you could buy a soda, and my parents didn't buy soda). After watching folks whack at balls while wearing funny shoes with metal spikes, I came to the realization that it simply was not a game that appealed to me in any way, and made the decision that the best time to give up golf, like the best time to give up drinking, smoking, snorting, or any other bad habit, is before you start. Thus far I have not regretted that decision in any way. Riding bicycles, hiking, and rollerblading (before my knees got so bad) are much better exercise, and it is always entertaining to watch the scenery and occasional other persons go by.

So to those of you who torture innocent white balls with clubs: Why?

That is all.

I skipped golf and went straight to walking through the woods. Somehow Thoreau is to blame.

My X used to say that golf was a waste of good pasture.

I get frustrated very easily. Considering golf is a game that is all about frustration management I have always been thankful I knew better than to ever take it up.

I didn't give it up because I never started it. Then again, I never started a war, either.
