Play golf? Me? A crackpot idea like no other." - Those were the first thoughts I had when talking to active golfers. The situation was completely unsportsmanlike, because the conversation took place on the premises of a newspaper editorial office. The golfers were colleagues who liked to play a few holes on the nearby golf course after work in the summer. And as they were talking about bringing their "silverware" the next day to hit a few balls in the evening, I happened to be standing there. I sensed the fascination that this sport must have held for them and asked about it. I knew nothing about golf, only the usual prejudices. And that explained my first thoughts when my colleagues asked me if I would like to come along and give it a try.
