It try so hard to stay out of politics when I’m online. No matter how egregious someone’s behavior is, there are legions who think it’s all right.
But this is a golf blog, and one of the things I hold most dearly as a golfer is respect for the game.
You know how you hear all the time that you learn a lot about a man’s character by playing golf with him?
That takes me right to the Vanity Handicapper-in-Chief. His GHIN listing was released today. An even though he has played golf at least 30 times since January, this is his first posting in that period.
Now you build a vanity handicap by only posting your better scores. But the assumption is that you actually shot those better scores.
Have you ever seen this man swing a golf club? You have? Then you would know.
It reminds me of when Kim Jong-Il shot a 38 on a par-72 golf course in 1994 in North Korea, a round that included five holes-in one.
Good absolute grief.
