In my news feed today I read an article on Forbes.com regarding the world’s most expensive golf clubs.  While the subject of $76,000 clubs is interesting, the writing is a complete hack-job.

“In the game of golf, talent alone won’t get the ball very far. While spiked shoes, collared shirts and cigars are synonymous with the game, all you really need on the course is a club. And while there’s no promising that using a more expensive club will lead to a lower scorecard, there’s not harm in checking out the world’s most luxurious options, is there?”

Let’s try to digest this double bogey…

“In the game of golf, talent alone won’t get the ball very far.”

Yes, we golfers are constantly trying to “get the ball very far.”   In fact, TaylorMade’s next advertising slogan is going to be “Get the ball very far, guaranteed.”  Book it.

“While spiked shoes, collared shirts and cigars are synonymous with the game, all you really need on the course is a club.”

Yes, spiked shoes, circa 1985 when shoes had spikes.  And who needs more than “a club” to play?  Not me.  I only play with “a club.”  Who needs golf balls?  Makes it easy to travel.

“And while there’s no promising that using a more expensive club will lead to a lower scorecard, there’s not harm in checking out the world’s most luxurious options, is there?”

Right.  Who does not want a “lower scorecard?”  Screw those idiots trying to lower their scores, they could just lower their scorecards!  After reading the second half of that sentence a few times my brain is tied in a pretzel.

Conclusion

One club, getting the ball far, spikes, and a low scorecard!  Forbes knows golf!
