  • The playing lesson: Essential for golfers

     I am a driving range star. I can go to the practice range with a whole bucket of balls and hit them flawlessly. My drives are long and strong; my irons fly high and true. My wedges stick to the green.

    Then I go the golf course and lose it all. The ball goes right, it goes left, it bumps along the ground, killing worms and insects as it scuttles along. My driver soars like a wedge; my wedge chunks. My 7-iron shanks into the woods (ooops, I’m sorry I said the bad word).
