A few months ago, a guy named Nick Gansar bought his first golf ball.
He was in his early 30s, and he’d only ever played golf.
His parents were retired.
Nick thought he’d play golf for a bit and see how it all went.
He’d be there, on the tee, trying to make the shot.
That’s when Nick was hit in the head with a baseball bat.
He had a hole in his skull.
He got shot with a golf ball, which caused him to have to have a titanium plate implanted in his brain.
He lost a lot of brain cells.
Now, Gansard has a lot to think about.
Gansart has a problem with the way that the world views golf.
He doesn’t like to say anything bad about golf balls, he says.
But he does believe in the game.
“If I was playing golf today, I’d probably feel pretty bad about what I’ve been through,” he says, adding that he feels like a lot more than he is now.
Golf balls are a lot easier to get in the world today than they were a few decades ago.
Today, the best players can play in about 70% of tournaments.
But for many golfers, the number of tournaments has been cut in half.
This year, only one in three players can find a tournament with a minimum of 150 holes, according to Golf Digest.
“You can go to an indoor event, and there’s probably 20 to 25 of them out there, and you might have a couple hundred players,” says Gansal, who says he’d like to play more tournaments.
He recently found a tournament that he says was “not as exciting as it used to be.”
Golf is the most popular game on the planet, but Gansarth is concerned that the sport is getting a bad rap.
“The fact that the game is getting bad in the media, I think, has got to do with a lot [of] people not knowing how to do the game correctly,” he tells National Review.
“There’s no doubt that people don’t know how to play the game, and they don’t play the games correctly.
And I think a lot, a lot people think that they do.
And if you think you do, and if you’re not the one to say that, then you’re kind of going to go against your own morals.”
The best players in the business say they play the way they do because it helps them focus on their game and not worry about how others think about it.
“They know how the game works,” says Mike Joy, the former owner of Pebble Beach Golf Club, which won two majors last year.
“It’s not about how many people think about the game or how many players think about their game.
It’s not really about how much money you make or how much people say that you’re good at it.
It really is about how you can do your game.”
Joy has played golf for more than 20 years, and his players have gone on to have successful careers.
But Joy has noticed a lot changes in golf since his days of playing the game the way it was meant to be played.
“Golf is now a lot bigger than it was,” he said.
“When I was growing up, golf was a little bit of a game that was more of a kids’ game.
Now it’s a game where the average guy is going to play it for five or 10 years.
And then they’ll retire.
And that’s just a huge change.”
In a world of instant gratification, golf can be a lot cheaper than a golf club.
“I think golf is a little more accessible now than it used in the past,” says Joy.
“People can have fun.
They can play with their friends.
And they can pay their friends.”
Joy, who now has a golf course in New York City, says that for people who want to get involved in the sport, he suggests putting down a deposit.
He has also introduced a weekly golf tournament, where he will give out a prize to the player with the most money.
“A lot of people can’t make that money because they’re not making the money that they think they should make,” he told National Review this summer.
“So I think if you want to help a guy with his money, if you are willing to pay, then I would say go do it.
You can’t just go and get an $800 golf ball and say, ‘Hey, this is it.
This is what you’re going to do.’
You have to make some kind of commitment.”
Golfers have a lot in common with their golf clubs.
They’re all designed to take up less space and offer more options for players.
But golfers aren’t just golfers anymore.
“With the golf club, the players aren’t golfers.
They’ve become an extension of the club,” says Jim
