Why Most Golfers Are Wimps
Let’s see now, carry the golf clubs to the cart. Get in cart drive. Tee off. Watch the ball. Get into cart and drive 100 yards to fairway. Take out golf club. Hit ball a few more times. Watch it sink into a hole. Get back in cart and drive to next tee. Do this 17 more times.
Delude yourself that you’ve just worked out. Drive cart to lot and have a big meal at the Inn.
We’ve seen it happen all day long, 365 days a year.
Our house overlooks part beautiful historic golf course. Hall-of-Famers Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino and Gary Player have walked these legendary fairways and greens.
The thing is, it first opened for play in 1899. That means, people walked the course for many, many decades. They were rewarded with magical views of the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains, streams, ponds, majestic trees, and the occasional turkey or fox who frequent the course. No antiseptic feel on this course. It’s Made for walking.
Only recently were carts introduced as people became lazier, lost touch with why they wanted to be outside, and were pressed for time.
The wimpy golfers that are driving their little carts around are missing the whole point of having an outdoor sporting experience.
From what we can tell, less than 5% of them actually walk the course. Imagine what great conversations they could have as they commune with nature while discussing the finer points of teeing off.
As Americans get fatter, I think we’re also getting more stupid.
I’d recommend these golfers listen to the The Secret Power of Words and Music 5 CD package. In order to raise their IQ by bringing some life to their brain cells. Because the wiser you are, the more you leave the fast paced rat race behind. You stop racing and start enjoying. You realize that you’re a creative machine. Not a rat in a maze.
So take this beautiful Spring weekend to renew your outlook on life. I do it every day. Soak in the sounds of Renewal and walk into a whole new world.

P.S. Tomorrow is Easter, a celebration of renewal and regeneration. Now you can take this feeling and encapsulate it for the rest of the year. Just by listening to the renewing music of the The Secret Power of Words and Music package.
