Darren Clarke is one of the best golfers around when he’s on top of his game. But, the 2011 Champion Golfer of the Year hit a shank that had everyone twitching their eyes, arms and hands.
During the Dubai Desert Classic is when Clarke hit his shankaroo. So, Tiger Woods isn’t the only one having a slow start so far, shooting a 5-over 77 during the opening round.
Perhaps Darren could pull out his Claret Jug, and rub it to gain his magical powers back? Well, I guess that would be cheating, but nonetheless, Mr. Clarke has nothing to feel bad about because “golf is hard”.
I always compare golf to the popular video game, Dark Souls. In the game, you face a ton of difficult enemies, and you’ll likely die a million times.
Heck, even the back of the box of the first game (series is on its third installment) says “Prepare to Die”. I already have a new game idea called “Golf Souls: Prepare to Bogey Edition”.
And yes, you will get a million bogeys, and you will like it.
Be sure to follow me on Twitter @ChiGolfRadio for no apparent reason! Well, I retweet and talk a lot about golf, so I guess that’s a thing. You can also read my work over at Pro Golf Now (oooh, fancy)
