As we were preparing to tee off, Billy asked me if I was going to congratulate him. I asked for some clarification, and he advised me that he was the B-flight champion in the club championship. He said it was all down to the "push and pull" method that he'd adopted thanks to the "John Haynes School of Golf."
I was really pleased for him because he's certainly been having his struggles. I was pleased that my suggestion had helped. Steve piped in, as he is inclined to do at times like this, and reminded me that I had pretty much single-handedly taken him from a 14 to a 20.
I reminded him that you can't make a silk purse from a sow's ear. Furthermore, I informed him that he was actually an "Askhole;" someone who asks for advice and then doesn't take it. While I'm not a teacher, I wonder how many teachers out there vainly try to help guys like Steve. You can't help an Askhole.
We had a fun match, with Steve and Radar against Billy and I. Billy and I had won the match after fifteen, so Radar decided to press. And again, Billy, the B-fight champion, and I took them down on 18, when both Steve and Radar missed short ones for par.
I told them they should have expected nothing else. After all, they were up against a champion. It was a fun day.
