Ducking for Cover

Ducking for Cover

The weather has shanked
“Fore” degrees is the call.
I’m ducking for cover;
           Wishing Happy New Year to all.

Speculation

TigerWoods1997

Now that Tiger has successfully completed a tournament without injury, the golf writers are having a field day (again) speculating about almost every future possibility. That’s fine, but I suspect Tiger’s focus is much narrower.

Speculation

Now that Tiger’s playing again,
Conjecture rules the day.
While Tiger’s thinking (here’s my guess)
Please, just let me play.

Narin Golf Club – 1986

Narin

I just looked at the clubhouse pictured on the Narin Golf Club’s website. It is much larger and more extensive than the one I remember from a family golf trip to Scotland in 1986. Then, if I remember correctly, it was just a single room with a long counter and an elderly proprietor to welcome us. This recollection inspired the four lines below. (Many of today’s golfers may find it hard to relate to the word picture I have drawn.)

Narin Golf Club, Scotland – 1986

The old proprietor ‘s greeting
On a windy cloudy day;
Nothing fancy, nothing false,
You couldn’t wait to play.
