In a plurality decision, Dear Readers, most of us, as a group, don’t like having an entire side of the golf course taken away from us on the tee. That is the not-quite-overwhelming result of the May Poll question.
Personally, I have to agree. If there is a particular place or direction I absolutely cannot hit the ball, there is a very high likelihood of one of two things occurring: 1) I will bail WAY out to the other side of the course and end up out of position or in trouble, or 2) I will hit a screaming drive directly into whatever trouble there is, be it a lake, creek, or out-of-bounds.
I guess it’s good to know that my misery has company among you.
Additionally, some of the individual “other” answers included:
- “A drive from the tee! I’m a beginner” – *Editor’s note: I suspect this was provided by The Wife.
- “Any shot into an island green.”
- “A ball below my feet.”
- “Into the wind/cross-wind blowing toward trouble.”
Reasonable fears all.
