The Golf Gods have decided to roll on the floor while laughing at me

I went golfing yesterday which is not news in and of itself. What was news was the fact that there was a really good golfer amongst our foursome.

He started the day making birdie on the first hole. Then the third. Then the sixth. He made it to the eighth having given back a few strokes so he made an eagle. By the time his eagle putt dropped, I was in the vicinity of walking off the course due to quintuple bogey and a pulled ass muscle. Don't. Ask.

The round wore on and he began to tire like the rest of us. But that makes sense because it was 95 degrees, sunny and humid.

It also made sense because this golfer was 8 years old.
