For many of our readers, falling in love with golf came easy because it meant time well spent on the course with a loved one.
For many, golf was love at first sight. For others, it may have taken some time. We have done some research on the web to find out why you love it and how you fell in love with it:
Most people find these are the main reasons for them to keep falling in love with this sport:
The focus it requires. If you’re going to play well, you really do need to forget about everything else, right?
The sights, smells and sounds. The smell of the freshly cut grass, the sound of a crisply struck iron shot.
The smell of a new leather glove and the sound metal spikes made on the concrete.
The views and the sounds of golf: the birds and the wind.
Pulling off a shot. Even those of us who are lousy at the game occasionally impress ourselves by hitting the shot we imagined.
The challenge. We hear that one all the time. The difficulty of the game is seen as an obstacle. And yet, despite the impossibility of it all, that difficulty is one of many reasons why you embrace the game. “I love golf because it seems simple on the surface, but is too difficult to master. It is hard and I like it. Easy is boring but playing great is endlessly enjoyable.”
