While Girn has some complaints, justified or not, the message is clear: you will enjoy the game more if you lower your expectations.
In real life, wind changes direction and gusts. In real life it might rain (or even snow) and that makes it harder to play golf and expect to break par.
In real life greens are not always mowed exactly the same every day. Grass even grows or drys out during the day.
There is one water hole that I play where I use an old, scuffed ball, and I make the green every time! And then I use a nice new ball, and you can guess the results.
I talk to the local pro, get tips, pay for lessons, buy better equipment and still can't lower my handicap.
There are days when my local course has closed due to unplayable conditions.
Girn is certainly calling it as he sees it and he's right on the money when he talks about the game of golf. It is frustrating and I keep having to reach into my pocket to buy a round after I play with several of my friends. Naturally they each buy a round but that's what friends who play golf do.
