When I was little, I would often accompany my grandpa on his frequent golf outings. He is an avid golfer and was the most prominent influence when I decided to try it out. I have heard countless people tell me that golf is not a real sport, but that is how you know they have never played. Golf is an individual sport and relies on a strong mental game rather than a physical one, albeit the physical side should not be overlooked. In my four years playing the sport, I have learned more from golf and golfers around me than in any other activity. In college, I would love to continue learning these lessons.
