To golf or not to golf? What a stupid question! "All the world's a golf course, and all the men and women merely players. They have their drivers and their irons; and one man in his time plays many courses." William Shakespeare, with a twist.
When I call you to go through the deep waters I will be with you! I will not let you sink nor let the waves overcome you! When you walk through the fire you will not get burned! I am the Lord thy God [paraphrase]
"In the end we only regret the chances we didn't take." So be risky because you would rather look back and say I can't believe I did that instead of I can't believe I didn't do that. I do regret that amazing chance that I didn't take.
