Do you ever get lucky?
My 68-year-old father-in-law does. This picture is proof. He seems to have a golden touch. And his birthday round at Macau Golf & Country yesterday was no exception.
He was out of bounds on a par 3 and holed this shot from 150 yards out. He parred after taking a penalty!
That’s basically how the day went…he’s a 25 handicap. Neither of us had played the course. No practice. Borrowed clubs. He golfs 3-4 times per year MAX (and I haven’t picked up clubs since playing with Aaron Chang 4 years ago.)
It defies the odds. But it doesn’t just happen on the course. This guy hits the money shot constantly: dice games, betting pools, et al.
He’s got a hot hand…
Do you know anyone like this?
Does it drive you crazy?
Me? I’m cool with it. You know what they say, “better to be lucky than good”
…perhaps I should rub his tummy before heading to the office 🙂
