You have heard the stories before. Perhaps you have even witnessed them yourself. A 90-year-old man breaks 90 in consecutive rounds. A lifelong golfer shoots 66 on her 66th birthday. But nothing compares to the feats of Kermit Dannehl, who has shot an astonishing 1,138 rounds at or below his age! Clearly, the old adage still applies – age really is just a number.

 

Long before the advent of tees, golfers played off of hand-built sand piles. That all changed, of course, when tees were invented, gaining popularityduring the 1920s.

The term golf originated from the Netherlands. The Dutch word for club is “kolve” or “kolf”. The Dutch likely introduced the word to the Scots through trading during the 14th until the 17th centuries. Due to linguistic differences, the Scottish dialect modified the pronunciation and the terms became “gouff” and “goff”. In the 16th century, the term became, simply, golf.

“Now that I am wealthy enough to afford lost balls,” complained an older golfer on the 8th at Houston’s Champion Course, “I can’t hit them far enough to lose them.”

If you can smile when all around you have lost their heads – you must be the caddie.

“Late again, Sorry.”

“You and your ‘golf buddy’ Harry both give me a swift pain. What’s the excuse, this time?”

“Nothing but delays, delays – all day. Harry’s car had a flat on the way to the course. An enormous line waiting to tee off. The thunderstorm, the hailstorm. The air raid alert. Harry dropping dead on the 12th green.”

“Harry dropping dead?”

“yup. And after that, it was just hit the ball drag Harry…hit the ball …..drag Harry all afternoon.”
