Do you have golf rage?

Have you been a victim of golf rage? Yes, like road rage, it's where someone on the golf course, perhaps even a playing partner, gets enraged at something you said or did and that person gets physical (or threatens doing so) with you.

According to a NY Times article, incidents of golf rage are becoming more common.

Those folks need to take a deep breath and focus on why they're playing the game -- for the fun of it. That's the f-word that I use when talking about golf. I know it can be frustrating, but if it's not fun any longer, then that's when I need to take a break from it.

As we've been reminded this last week with several celebrity deaths, life is short. So, whether playing for business or just recreation, have FUN with golf!

BTW: No one chose Lucas Glover as the winner of the U.S. Open. Congrats, Lucas! On Thursday, the Open Championship starts. Here's the t.v. schedule. Enjoy!
