For the most part, I worked outside, plus I had access to chow and ice-cold Gatorade all day. What more could a girl ask for? I also learned a bit or two about the game–and, as serious an athlete as I was then, the sport proved one of the most difficult of any I'd tried. Like tennis, it's very technical.
All the little idiosyncrasies of it certainly stole my attention for a
bit–the whistle of the club and whizzing of the air-born ball (and the concentration leading up to each swing). Its athletes are also some of the best, and most poised, in the world–like Tiger Woods,
Padraig Harrington, Phil Mickelson and more.
This year, if you want to learn a little bit about the game (or at least find out what all the Tiger Woods fuss is about), tune into a few competitions. ESPN and NBC will both cover the first two rounds on Thursday and Friday.
