One sentence to describe golf.

senatornewsomesenatornewsome Members Posts: 18 ✭✭
This is an interesting thought that popped into my head. If somebody asked me to explain golf in one sentence I'm not sure what I would even say!

Anybody have thoughts on what they would say to someone? (assuming they've never heard of golf) or How have some of you explained golf to your kids the first time they asked?

(honestly, im not sure if anybody has ever asked this on the forums before and I didn't wanna scroll through a hundred pages so cut me some slack if somebody has asked this before please)

    Golf is a game where you can only play well if you wear a collared shirt according to country clubs from all around the world.

    It’s not a single sentence but a quote from Bobby Jones.

    Golf is the closest game to the game we call life. You get bad breaks from good shots; you get good breaks from bad shots - but you have to play the ball where it lies.

    Golf is a nice relaxing way to get really frustrated and super disappointed in yourself.

    Golf is a combination of a walk in a beautiful garden and being water boarded.
    Walter: Tell me Bobby, why do you play this game?
    Bobby: I play because I love it.
    Walter: Well I play for the money. I have to win. That is why every time we face each other I will always beat you.

    Golf, a game, an obsession, a life-long pursuit of passionate detail, to challenge the course, and conquering the urge to never gift payment in the BST.

    Depends on the day. One day it's "the physical manifestation of peace, tranquility, and personal satisfaction."

    Another day is the biggest waste of time and money, while paying to cause yourself anger and frustration.

    Score and pace of play are the only differences.
