Play the ball as it lies...or with creative lies

August 25, 2011

‘Golf is the cruelest of sports. Like life, it’s inherently unfair. It’s a harlot. A trollop. It leads you on. It never lives up to its promises…it’s a boulevard of broken dreams. It plays with men. And runs off with the butcher.’
--Jim Murray

Nicholas isn’t going to poor mouth the spin casters, or graphite and fiberglass. Different strokes and casts for different folks. It’s just that he prefers angling a different way. No, Nicholas isn’t going to take that bait.
