For many golfers, the headline catches our attention immediately. We have had experienced one form of disaster on the golf course and that event raced to the forefront of our thoughts.

Nonetheless, these events are real and seem to appear out of normal.

For years I have chased the perfect golf shot. I realized after more failures than successes, that the perfect golf shot is an illusion.

If anyone has any other questions or needs qualification on my ramblings, please do not hesitate to drop me a line!
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
