The practical exam round for the Platzreife is almost complete. It didn't go well, but not so badly that I had to set myself up for a repetition. Now I'm standing on the last green, with exactly one stroke left to pass the golf course license test. The upcoming putt is not impossible, but also not easy to make. Full concentration is now the order of the day.
Even before I held a golf club in my hand for the first time, there were friends who wanted to proselytize me for the game on the long courses. One very special couple once took me out for a round. I was just a spectator, but quickly got an impression of how much the game with the small ball is subject to special rules.
When I stand on a teeing ground for the first time, tee up the ball and look at the distant green, I still feel strange. Is this me? What am I doing here? And why? It will take some time before this very spot on the tee of the first hole will give me the inner peace that I have come to love.
