Having grown up in corporate America, I was forced to put in my time on the golf course. After taking home a trophy for highest score, it was obvious I wasn’t slated to be a female Tiger Woods. No matter how adorable I looked in my pastel golf attire, it didn’t detract from the fact I couldn’t hit the ball more than fifty yards.
What I did take home was a valuable dating tool. Where else can you determine the character of a person in one afternoon? How someone plays golf is often reflective of how they live their life. For those single women out there, forget about romantic dinners or strolls on the beach. If you want to know a man’s true colors in less than five hours, head to the greens. Grab a club and a man and try them on for size.
His butt may look cute clad in khaki or even pink plaid, but do you want to spend your life with someone whose ability to add disappears once he hits the golf course? If he lies about the number of strokes he took, what else will he lie about?
What about his ability to cope with frustrating situations? If he wraps his Big Bertha around a tree when his ball lands in a sand trap, is he still your Mr. Right?
Does he willingly relinquish the golf cart to you? A man who is comfortable with a female driver has a lot of potential. A man who lets you drive four holes back to make a pit stop is definitely a keeper.
If you ask for suggestions to improve your game and he gives you eighteen different tips, this may not be the man you want to trim the Xmas tree with. On the other hand if his only comment is that your beauty distracted him, this fellow has potential.
How about his attitude? Is he a glass half full or half empty kind of guy? Does he grin remembering the great putt he made? Or gripe about the drive that landed in the woods.
That’s my tip sheet for the day. I would love to hear comments from gals and guys. Has a perfect ten guy ever dropped down to a two? And for you guys out there, what turns your dream gal into a dud?
