Opinion: Golf Blogs –
by Wayne Halm –
“Check out the competition – see how you stack up” – wise words.
I want to be wise — So I searched the Internet for other golf blogs – the results struck me odd.
There are plenty of websites trying to sell me equipment, lessons, and discounted tee times. I guess that’s all good stuff – but to me it is just advertising – not golf.
Also there are websites with professional photos of professional players and glowing articles about PGA events. Again, I guess there is room for that – but to me it is just television and PGA hype – not golf.
Where are the stories and pictures of people having fun playing golf?
I believe golf is something you do – not something you buy – and not something you watch. Golf is something you play. So my message to golfers: “Get off you butts – Get away from the television – Get out on the course – You’ll have a lot more fun.”
Am I alone in that opinion? Not quite. I did discover a blog at http://brianpenn.wordpress.com that was about golfing. Brian Penn actually writes stuff there – and seems to have fun golfing – my kind of guy. I recommend reading it on rainy days when the course is closed.
Now, I may simply not be very good with the ‘search thing’. If you know of any other good golfing blogs, please tell me about then in a comment.
Come play golf with me.
