Is a Four-putt.
This sage advice comes directly from Jeff Foxworthy in his new golf handbook "How to really stink at Golf."
The good news is that this book will take you about 10 minutes to read. More good news is that it makes for a terrific gift for your golf obsessed friend, spouse, etc. It's also worth 2 or 3 really good laughs.
In particular, I loved Jeff's swing thoughts:
"Feet shoulder width apart, relax at the knees, arms straight, hands forming a perfect V, remember to rotate your hips, not too fast on the takeaway, are your shoes tied? Yea, I'm pretty sure they are, check the wind, did I leave the stove on this morning?" Etc, Etc, Etc.The bad news is that some of the jokes aren't all that funny. Ah well.
The book does however make a good point in the end. Golf is about having fun and shouldn't feel like work. It's too bad I actually care about getting better.
If I were a reviewer who gave stars, I'd give it a 3 out of 5. Or, in golf terms, a bogey. Close to par, but not quite.
