Dave Winer asks "Should I take up golf? or is golf evil?" Heh. Well, I've been playing golf since I was 16 - and like everyone else who's stuck with the game, I really wish I could get out more often. It's a funny game though - I've got some friends I can play golf with (my cousin, for instance) - while other friends simply find the game frustrating. I think it depends a lot on your level of patience (with yourself). If you find that you get more and more angry when you just can't quite get it, then golf may not be for you. Why? Well, the first few times you go out (unless you are some kind of prodigy), you'll screw up your drives. You'll top the ball and hit a lot of grounders. You'll muff more putts than you could believe is possible. And yet... there's always that one unbelievable shot that you just have no idea how you managed to make. That's what keeps me going back. For anyone else? I think you have to try it.
