Does everyone suck at golf?
I was watching the Michael Strahan episode of Feherty the other night and something he said resonated with me. At one point he admitted he was scared to start playing golf because he thought everyone was really good, but he soon realized “everyone sucks.” At first I laughed, but I thought about it a minute I realized in all my years of playing golf (19 to be exact) I have never played with someone where I thought “wow, he is really good.” I’m a mid-handicapper, and am by no means great at the game. But I have played with guys that say oh yeah I’m a 6 or 8 handicap and so forth, and by the end of the round we shot dang near the same score. Sure some guys can bomb their drive and others putt lights out, but overall they have been just as average as I am. So, is Michael right, are most golfers lying about their handicap/scores? Or do I somehow make other golfers around me worse?
