Dear Golf God,
This morning, I played 9 holes. Before I went to golf course, I prayed to you: Please don’t let my ball go into the water or the sand trap because golf balls are not cheap, and I do usually take 2 or 3 shots to get out of the bunker; Please don’t let me hit the ground before hitting the ball because that’s a little embarrassed for this old lady. I promised, in return, I would repair all my divots and I would clear other player’s foot prints in the bunker if I happen to see some. I informed you that I would wear a green golf shirt and our tee time is at 9:30.
Well, I lost two balls in the water; I was in the sand trap twice; and I hit ground three times. What went wrong?
I am not complaining here. Really. I just want to take the responsibility to correct my mistakes. Did I pray at a wrong time… maybe I should pray the night before? Should I improve my communication skill… maybe I should speak in both English and Chinese? Please help me understand.
Wait. At the last minute, I changed to wear a blue golf shirt. Is that it?
