The other day I was sitting in my office at work when a female co-worker comes in says "Hey, I watched the golf tournament this weekend." I was like "That's nice, I didn't know you liked golf."
Then she blindsides me with a golf question. She asks me "why do golfers wear only one glove? Can't they afford two? Ha, ha, ha." Then she blindly stared at me waiting for an answer to this most elementary question.
I was like, "Uh, uh, that's a good question. Hmmm, why do golfers only wear one glove?" I had to think back to the basics and then I gave her an in depth explanation filled with more BS and useless information about golf gloves, the golf swing, the importance of each hand in a golf swing... She got the bonus plan baby!
This got me thinking as to how golfers who have been playing for a while tend to overlook, or just don't think about the little things that are so essential. Seriously, why didn't she ask me about Vijay Singh's driver, Chris Riley's putter, or what type of ball Phil Mickelson plays. A real golf question. I was dumbfounded when asked why golfers only wear one glove, but at the same time I thought it was an amazing and observant question to ask.
I'm sure next week she'll ask me what color tee makes the ball go farther, but for now I am going to watch golf with a different eye and see if this leads to some interesting questions of my own.
