My Handicap for This Round:

Despite wondering around a golf course aimlessly for hours today feeling totally drained from the heat and uninspired by the lack of . . . anything, I feel like I got ample time to walk around and rethink the sport we know as golf. First, I don't blame anyone who may fall asleep at any point while watching the game. . . lets be honest it's a boring sport. Second, I will send care packages to caddies as well as the troops this year, because after an afternoon of carrying a small domnke bag all around the course, I can only imagine their pains. Third, the sky's get beautiful, but nobody seems to care. I would think with all the time people spend with their eyes towards the sky, scanning for tiny white balls they would stop and enjoy it. And finally, I am pretty frightened by the lifestyle these men must lead and how completely stereotypical rich, white, and suburban the whole experience was.

Hahaha, don't worry about the caddies, they take home 10% of whatever the golfer wins. Tiger Woods' is almost as loaded as he is.

I shot the Senior Open Championship when we went to Scotland back in '07 and you should have seen the sky there. It rained off and on through the day and it was amazing.
