Golf is improv

Many golfers are misled by watching the pros, who tend to make golf look robotically simple. But it isn't. Each shot is an event unto itself, so golf is actually complete improvisation. Not shot is set in stone, but must be thought out and felt on a moment-to-moment basis. Instead of hoping your round will conform to anything approaching a pro's round, it instead is a shot-by-shot experience, where each shot is a completely original and not-to-be-repeated event.

"Who does this guy think he is?"
"I don't know Danny, but I do know this: no one has ever played better than me in a button down shirt."
