A Sport for Fathers and Neurotic Sons

Andrew Golding

The game of golf is simply explained—knock a tiny white ball into a small round hole hundreds of yards away. Golf's more talented players make it look easy; a smooth stroke launches a shot to within yards of the target with ease.

For the less talented, golf is not so simple. Those who are mere mortals are accustomed to pleading with errant drives, forced to play out of sand traps and bunkers, searching for lost shots in prickly shrubbery, and trying to retrieve balls from water.
