Ask the Golf Guzzler -- No. 15
Dear Guzzler: Is "head" good?
A: In Europe, head is considered healthy and natural. Yet Americans often find it distasteful. My suggestion is to give it a try. If you like it, head can be one more important way to take pleasure from beer. If you don't like it, just spit it out.
Dear Guzzler: After legally drinking on golf courses in Britain for two years, I was horrified to be refused a drink on a recent golfing holiday in the USA. This almost ruined my holiday but I still got a few jugs down me with my "elders." Can you do anything about the absurd over-21 drinking law?
A: Sorry, Brit. Here in the land of the free and the home of the brave, we do what we're told. Baah.
Dear Guzzler: A few years ago some friends and I were out on a golf guzzling expedition, and somewhere on the back nine, I inadvertently drove the cart over an embankment and into a creek. Needless to say, we had drawn quite a crowd who were waiting to play through while we fished beers, clubs and the cart out of the creek. It was the low point on an otherwise pleasant outing. The embarrassment it caused me has kept me from one of my favorite pastimes (golfing, not drinking) ever since. Any suggestions for me to overcome my phobia and get me back out on the links?
A: Heck, who hasn't pulled that stunt once or twice? Sure, it's embarrassing when you sober up. But don't let it spoil your fun. Tell your lawyer the steering was defective (technically, it's not perjury because you were steering) and refuse to ever play that second-rate course again.
