Yesterday, Stephen Gallacher won the Dunhill Links Championship, by finishing the tournament 19-under-par. I’d just thought I’d share this with you for one reason.
I bloody hate professional golf.
Yesterday, I went to Allerton Golf Course on the other side of Liverpool in…errr…Allerton. What I don’t like about golf on the telly is just how easy they make it look. Even getting it off the ground was a major achievement for me. The times that it did – albeit briefly – defy gravity, it was usually so far off course that it crossed an international date line.
Yes, I’m aware it was my first time, and – my mum would be pleased – I finally used my clubs which was my Christmas present a few years back. I manage to hit on a 34 par course a grand total of 60 – leaving me 26 over par. For those of you who don’t have a clue about golf, let me spell it out for you: It’s not good.
However, despite the fact I spent more time in the trees than Tarzan, I will probably play again. Despite the fact that I was terrible, I did have fun. I just don’t want to watch it on telly anymore, as it makes me feel like a sad, pathetic loser.
Formula 1? Now THERE’S a spectator sport:-
