What’s so cool about a hole in one?
Surely, it’s the playing and having fun
A birdie, an eagle or an albatross
To non-golfers …what is all that fuss?
So, you’ve teed off in search of the putt
All that effort and still missed the cut
You blame the club …you curse the wind
Others watch and smile at your awkward swing
Bunker to bunker you let the ball fly
Your swing seems suited to the sands of Dubai
But there’s more to golf than all this strife
The eighteen holes are rich in lessons of life
Drive, approach, chip, double…and triple bogey
What do you need to do to get that elusive birdie?
Woods and different irons you start to deploy
None of the fancy strategies give you joy
Patience, concentration, hole by hole
Life is full of surprises that continue to unfold
How could you land in a bunker with such a carefully aimed ball?
A gust of wind, dazzling sunlight and then you stumble and fall
What do you do to lower this painful handicap?
Could you really be one of the worst golfers on the map?
Par…par, par, par, par, par …par!
Pretty impressive yet some say it won’t get you far
