One True Golf Fact

I’m amused by the countless ads touting the “secrets” only the pros know about striking a golf ball. If you buy in, these tips can add 20 yards to your game and lower your score by 10 shots.


Failure follows primarily because golfers were put on earth to shoot a certain score, simple as that.


Bottom line: Professionals learn a proper grip and swing when they are kids. They know how to practice the right way and they have hit a shitload of balls grooving those buttery swings you see on Sunday afternoon. And, their asses don’t pucker standing over a 10-footer.


Hacks play once a week and practice only reinforces long-established bad habits. It’s an ugly world.


The golf ad's promise reminds me of the ripped abs ads. The fine print always delivers the bad news: "And you must follow the proper diet." In other words, 500 sit-ups aren’t going to melt away a cheeseburger and fries.


Here are a few smiles gleaned from the Internet:


– The fact that jellyfish have survived for 650 million years despite not having brains gives hope to many people.


– Breaking News: The Washington Football Team drop the word “Washington” from their name because it’s embarrassing.


– Christmas shopping with your husband is like hunting with the game warden.


- If you’re having a bad day, just remember someone from your hometown is still trying to become a rapper.
