The terms don’t mean anything

Who doesn’t understand “three-quarter backswing?”

I’m guessing about three-quarters of all people, if not golfers.

Other terms like “open up the club face” don’t help her either. How about “over the top?”

The idea that anyone would understand what “over the top” means might actually be under the influence of The Golf Channel.

What I learned … making up words to describe your swing keys matters only to you. In life, if you can’t agree on a set of terms or definitions, it’s really tough to have meaningful conversations. Find words that work well for everyone involved, then stick to them.

I, husband, take you, wife, to be my golf partner. I promise to be true to your one true golf swing, in good shots and in bad, on rainy days and windy days, for birdies and quadruple bogeys, as long as this round shall last.

Do you, husband, enjoy golfing with wife?

I Do!
