While I agree wholeheartedly (in fact I've never watched a single episode of any of those baking/sewing/dancing/etc shows), I suspect there are people out there who would say that once you've seen some guy hit a little white ball with a stick, you don't need to see them do it again.
I have a mate, currently plays off 26 ish hit the ball a mile but in any direction. but aims for 40 points, no matter what he's playing off, or where he's playing. it's always "I need 40 points today". I can't understand how anyone at that level (including myself, hovering around 22...) isn't happy for 1 - just being outside and having some fun with a few mates, and 2 - maybe just "being better than last week".
We are the same. We had snow on the 7th which closed the course, and we have had rain every day since, a lot of it quite substantial. I've walked the course with the dog and while in patches it's fine, if they opened it the hordes would arrive and it would be cut to pieces.
Saturday will be interesting as there is a 3-person team event scheduled. What will they do?
In the meantime I have become a range rat, which will probably be more productive in the long term but I'm missing real golf now.
