I love golf signs, especially ones that I have to read about 300 times to figure them out and still can’t.
I love how some grammar freak like me used a golf pencil to put in the missing comma after “the golfer.”
The sign addresses “the golfer.” So what if a person who isn’t a golfer is reading the sign? And what if a person who is not a golfer hits a ball? Or is the sign simply trying to call out the golfer in a group of non golfers? “Hey you, the golfer.”
I’m still trying to wrap myself around the “consequences of the ball you hit” part. The ball has consequences? I find that hard to believe but let’s assume it does. Why shouldn’t the ball itself be responsible for its own consequences? Why should I, assuming I’m the golfer, be responsible?
