But we're here, now, which is all we'll ever be as Jenny runs her tee shot right onto the green, looks delighted then embarrassed as we congratulate her. Mike tops his into horrible rough; I drag mine into a greenside bunker, and we all set off in pursuit of the consequences of our actions. Golf is a Scottish Presbyterian karma game. You pay for what you get, and what you get is what you did. It's also somehow finally God's Will and out of your control, so don't rail against it.
