As a avid golfer, I enjoy watching the pros on TV. Also as a retired healthcare professional with a long-time interest in lifestyle change, I observe the fans as well as the professionals. I was at the Deutsche Bank Championship last Saturday and felt compelled to put my thoughts to verse.
A Weighty Golf Observation
Does golfing make a golfer fat?
Bet no one’s ever thought of that.
But at each tourney ‘round every tee,
Heavy fans the majority.
We all know that golf breeds tension;
Could that alone cause waist extension?
Or is it just too much ball beating
That leads to all that carb overeating?
Could be the booze at 19th holes
That tallies untidy belly rolls.
But picking on duffers is really unfair;
Too many heavies everywhere.
Obesity’s become too big to ignore.
Solution as allusive as a lower golf score.
Still nothing done, no answers found,
Soon there’ll be less golfers around.
