Golf Humor Poetry:- Ode to the Fanatical Golfer (Part One)
He wanted golf to be experienced by all, And hoped his daughter would heed the call."C'mon!", he said. "You'll have a ball!""Why?", she asked. "Are we going to the mall?"
He'd often take his golf cart to work,And all his co-workers there would smirk.He didn't know why, and thought, "They're jerks!""How could they belittle such a perk?!"
His swing was big and grand, yet dopey,He cried and cried when he made a bogey.Kids thought, "What's wrong with this old fogey?"He thought, "I'm not old. I sport a goatee."
He loved his old and tattered bag,His caddie thought it was such a drag.But he hated more "golf cart tag",The golfer played with him, when he didn't move the flag!
Forever chasing the elusive par,He'd hit the ball straight and far.In the traps, his ball seemed stuck to tar!He'd still be there, when "parking" had narrey a car!
He loved the smell of the "fresh-cut green",But to him it proved such a fiend.It's favor to him, was always lean!Despite it's beauty, it could be so mean!
The point of golf? To put the ball in the hole.You do that with a "curved-end' pole.But the path, always guarded by a "troll",Or maybe yet, some "ticked-off" mole!
He was never any good in the traps, In fact, his "game" would always flap.But to others, it seemed to sit on their laps,While he was reduced to stomping his cap!
He'd read the "mags" to take his golf game higher.He wanted the best ball--best putter---best driver.Often going to his wife to borrow a "fiver",She wouldn't budge. No matter how hard he tried to "jive" her!
To the links, early morning he'd often travel,Sometimes his bathrobe and pajamas his only apparel.Unfortunately, the knot would often unravel,After jumping up and down at a lucky roll, he'd marvel!

Does Your Junior Golfer Need A Sport Psychologist?
"My son gets so angry on the golf course that he cannot perform in competitions". "My daughter gets so nervous when other people are watching her play that her game completely falls apart". "My kid hits it so well on the range, and then hits it all over the map in a tournament". These are the kinds of comments that I often hear from parents of junior golfers. Do these kids need a golf psychologist? No. Nobody needs training on the mental part of the game. I take the word need very seriously. I believe we need air and water and sleep and food. I certainly wouldn't suggest that anyone needs mental training, anymore than I would suggest that anyone needs golf lessons or physical training. What I would say, however, is that I have yet to encounter any player who couldn't benefit from proper mental, technical, or physical instruction. Thus, I believe any junior golfer could benefit from mental instruction. Most people simply don't understand what this training is or how it works.
