A round of golf is a series of thrilling moments strung together through a long walk. The most exciting of which are found on courses that keep you guessing. This game is intended to be an adventure. Thrills can come from bold tee shots and daring escapes. A well struck approach, holed chip, or sidewinding putt can stir the blood as well. These are the sort of shots that make golf worth playing. Because the game is hard, it is also compelling. The golfers ability to overcome difficulties on the course is what makes the sport so addicting. Golf is a lifelong chase for fleeting thrills — a worthy pursuit for the sporting soul.
