Yesterday I played golf for the first time in at least 5 years, and today I’m aching in places that I didn’t even know had muscles. I expected some soreness in my legs and back, but geez … even my hands hurt.
It was a work event and I’m not even going to bother reporting my score. Let’s just say that considering I hadn’t been on a golf course since moving to Sweden in 2002 (mostly because you have to have a license to play…get real), was using a borrowed set of clubs that were too long for me and didn’t have a proper glove, I was satisfied with the way I played. Especially on the front nine.
The back nine was a different story. I spent so much time hacking out of sand traps and fishing balls out of the water that one of my colleagues nominated me for the traditional “Baywatch Award” … given to the player who spends the most time on the beach.
