    I have noticed the more expensive the course, the less courteous the golfers. I can guess that there's a sense of entitlement among regular club members.

    Loved your story about the first time out. You did great!

      hello shahryar,

      not having stuck around long enough to test your theory, i will only say that the good money says it is a credible one, and is probably the result of experiences you have had.

      thanks for your generous comment.

      all the best and then some,

      michael

      •  High Stress Golf -- maybe part of the problem. (2+ / 0-)

        When people learn to play golf -- all the males and most of today's women -- they are taught to try and hit the ball long distances.

        T.v. shows super athletes such as Tiger Woods. The aim gets to be to hit the ball a country mile.

        Every golf ball on the shelf promises "More Distance." (They lie.)

        Its the rare golfer -- adult beginner, anyway -- that gets to learn to make contact with the ball first. And the educational materials are all about coreography.

        A trip to a driving range ??? Best place on earth for watching people over-stress their joints, tendons, ligaments, small bones in both hands, and muscles in what you'd think would be the least likely places.

        Balance and rhythm are good places to start. Not overswinging your arms. Being aware of the clubhead. Good luck with that.

        Its not obvious, but "No-No" is a steer.
