Between the Lines: Powderhound considers taking up golf

Posted on January 5, 2012 |
By Gregory Dennis



Driving home this past Monday, I saw a scene befitting this winter season.

I’d like to report that it was a cross-country skier. What I saw, though, was not a skier but a golfer — hitting practice balls off one of the tees at the college golf course.

That’s all you need to know about what kind of winter it’s been for skiers and snowboarders.

It’s written in the Official Manual for Sports Writing that predictions must be made. That’s Rule 1.

Rule 2? Once made, said prognostication must be quickly forgotten unless it miraculously proves correct.
