A common crossroads to be broached by all Shababas, taken from a recent e-mail from my son-in-law, who has an 8 handicap and is a GOOD golfer:
“And right now, I am a Baba. Plain and simple. My handicap will not indicate as much at least for a few more rounds, so I hope to be able to continue to say that I’m not technically a Baba, but I can only rely on one or two low rounds here and there for so long.
“In sum, I’m at a fork in the road when it comes to my golfing life. I can either go left into Babadom, or right into Stickdom. I’m going to steer the wheel right, and hopefully my brain and body go with me.”
Nick, heed the best golf advice I’ve ever read, from the great Harry Vardon: “No matter what happens, keep on hitting the ball.” After all, what else CAN you do?
All the best, Hubba
