Golf is one of those many sports that excludes music. It requires so much concentration and precision that music becomes a distraction. Why don't they play music in pilates studios?
I therefore decided to take destiny in my own hands and carry my 1 gram pink ipod with me on the par3 when I played a solitary game. I didn't bother turning it off, left it on PetShopBoys shuffle and put my earphones on. When I actually drove, chipped or putted, I would remove the wires, pause, reflect and play. Then I would revel in the pop lyrics that played during my walk on the greens. I chilled. And I actually played well.
I usually run to my next commitment after my golf game. I walked into the golf club house with self-defiance, ordered their house brewed coffee and watched Roger Federer play (this post was written during the Australian open). I enjoyed every second of the off-road experience. Not having to rush, to run errands.
Chilling out is worth writing a small vignette!
