About four or five years ago, a former golfer was standing in a ticket line at LAX, and a man in a line parrallel to his had a golf bag slung over his shoulder.
Since the line was long and airline ticketing is a slow process at best, the two men struck up a conversation. The man in the parrallel line brighten when the former golfer admired his golf bag. He proudly stated that he was on the PGA Tour.
The pro then asked the question all golfer ask,” Do you play?”
The former player shook his head. “I used to, but I quit because I wasn’t very good. I shot consistently in the high-60s, low-70s.”
There was a long, low intake of breath and then the pro repeated what he heard, “High-60s, low 70s? And you quit?”
“Yes,” the former golfer said.
“And you shot that consistently and still quit?” the pro asked incredulously.
The response that followed cracked up the pro. “Every hole,” the man said.
