Yup - I have played golf. It can be tricky, but the trick is to play and not think about how to play. And then if you feel you hit too many shots, pick up and move to the next hole, which I know it is not in the rules, but it does make it a lot more fun!
Yes I have, and plenty of times. I need to be out on the golf course sometimes for networking purposes in the media. Also, my family loves golf. I love it, because it helps boost your concentration and focus.
Yes, I attempted it once only.
I remember quite clearly even though it was many years ago -I tried to hit the ball and just could not connect. I got angrier and angrier as I played tennis and could not understand why I could not even hit the ball.
Eventually there came a booming voice over the microphone asking "the party on No. 1 tee to please move on".
I was horrified, and never tried it again.
