Who’ll Show Up To Play Today?

Remember the Patty Duke show?  Patty was the lead role, but then her “identical cousin” Cathy would appear out of nowhere.

That’s how I feel on the golf course.  Sometimes I look like someone who’s played golf before.  I’m not a great player, but it’s clear I’ve played before.

But then this BI&T$#CH “cousin” Cathy shows up – unwelcomed, uninvited and possibly high on drugs – and takes over my golf game.  She can’t even hold a club properly.  Her takeaway is bad, she has no follow-through, and she can’t chip or putt.  I hate her!

And she doesn’t just show up between rounds, sometimes she takes over in the middle of a round!  I had one round going where I was 2 over par after 9 holes.   I’m thinking I can break 80.  But noooooooooooo, Cathy shows up at the halfway house and goes 12 over on the next 9 holes.

How’d she even get out to the halfway house?   I knew I should’ve skipped that hotdog.

Why don’t you see a pro, Patty?  And tell the pro what – “we” have a problem?  I don’t need a pro, I need an exorcist.

    Cathy may show up, or she may not. But NEVER, EVER skip the hot dog!

    Cathy will always show up when the thought “I can break [insert number here]” enters your head.” Can’t let that happen!

    I love this! I think it happens to everyone. In spots, my garden looks like Helga showed up and took over the eggplant and some of the peppers!

      So these cousins don’t just show up on golf courses?
