"I used to play a lot of golf"

A quote that we got while playing Tribal Wars online from a member of the tribe, gordo king. It came up in the chat conversation somehow. Triggered the idea for this story.

Ever since John the Golf Course Guy started working, we kinda' lost interest in the game. In fact, Graham the Golfer didn't even take the clubs out of the basement this season.

...not even once

I guess when you work at a course, you spend so much time greeting customers and driving around and fixing stuff, that by the time you are finished your shift you just want to go home and take a shower. 

But I think more of it has to do with the fact that golf is really a social game. It's a lot more fun when you play it with a group of friends. A lot of them have got other things to do or have joined private courses and are financially obligated to make use of that membership. And some are now just hangin' (See How's It Hangin'...)

But I've made new friends. They've asked me to come play, but I always say No thanks. They don't ask anymore.

...OK Graham, we'll talk to Robbie, Ryan, Alex
...see if they'll let us play
...The Three Stooges are a lot of fun think they'll let the old guy play

...last year for the course next year
...building those monster homes
...pretty hard for the owners to turn down that kinda' money
