Target, and aim
Easy shot
Straight and narrow
Feet planted, slight
tail wind
Feels good
Don’t let the club face
turn over
Setup, impact – Yes!
NO!
Get Down! Get Down!



Ok…deep breath…
now
Hands ahead of the ball
Flat left wrist
Slow and easy
Take club back
Shoulders square
Let gravity
take over
Down and through
Slice…

*hacker*

Hhhhhmm…
Position ball on front
instep
don’t forget to breathe
Hands too tight
sweaty
Flagstick!
Flagstick, flagstick
who’s got the flagstick?
Oh sweet Par
Dreaded Nemesis
My pagan God
I just need
to make
this
putt.

I must say , (a bit embaressed) I enjoy watching golf, and this is the first poem EVER I've seen about the thoughts inside a golfer's head! Very interesting!! Nice job! Nearly got me cheering!!

LOL...thank you both. I was inspired by my younger brother, trying to teach me how to golf. I've heard all the 'horror' stories!

Nay, if our wits run the Wild-Goose chase, I am done:

Than I am sure I have in my whole five.

Satiate, you must know a lot about golf because these thoughts are right on! There is a bit more pleading, begging, and groveling involved but you captured the fear-induced checklist of doom beautifully!

This was clever ... at least you were praying to your gods and not taking their names in vain like many golfers I know ... I loved it, and I don't even like golf! )

satiate

lol - that was great - especially the GET DOWN part - been there so many times that, back in the early 80's, I single-handedly made golf balls an endangered species.

I'm glad you liked it Long John! I think some members of my family helped you a tad with the grand golf ball extinction...in fact...there is actually a golf ball embedded in a tree somewhere on the back 40 of my parents' property. Along with hundreds of other 'lost souls'...lol
