Your golf isn’t too good now. The large gin and mixers are beginning to take their toll. Drives over 175 yards are considered gems. Par 4s reached in 2 bring tears of joy. Par 3s are your specialty, while Par 5s are a dread.

You know the pro well though, so you’re confident you’ll be able to squeeze a good deal out of them in the shop.
