A Challenge from 93 years ago

Why I am a golfer in 100 words or less

I am a golfer because it is a pastime for a lifetime, somewhere between religion and disease. It is a microcosm of life, continually challenging the body and psyche to different degrees in a satisfying, encouraging way yet never allowing a full measure of satisfaction nor dismay. Allowing us to frequently start anew it refreshes and seduces as no other. Leading us to believe that we are somehow in control, it constantly reminds us that we are not. It allows us our own measure and gives us great pride to merely be a part of it. We are one with her.
