Why Golf Reminds Me of My Dog…..
It starts pouring when me and my dog are on a walk, and there’s no umbrella in my bag.
I feel like I know him, then he does something unpredictable, and I’m a beginner again.
My grass is full of his divots in my back yard.
He kicks up a lot of sand when he “goes” in the trap.
I throw him the ball so many times I lose track of the score.
I like spending time in nature with him and getting some exercise.
When I hit the ball into the water, he becomes a ball retriever.

Some golf courses allow dogs on the course to clear the greens of geese, and others allow them on as companions to golfers. Imagine how surprised professional golfer Paul Casey was while competing in The European tour, when a dog ran on the green and stole his ball.
It happened at The Kingsbarns Golf Links in Saint Andrews, at The Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, in October 2012, while Casey was putting for eagle on the 12th hole.
A spectator grabbed the ball on the 13th hole and Paul Casey was able to play the ball without penalty, although he probably pulled out his towel and wiped it off first.
