ゴルフの本
This book was created
especially for
Kengo Mori
a golfer without equal!
Dec 30, 2012
The game of golf, as we know it, was
developed in Scotland in the early
1700's. Since its humble beginnings,
the game has exploded in popularity
around the world. From its legendary
stars like Slammin' Sammy Snead to
the current crop of rising young stars
on the PGA and LPGA tours, the
game has been played many ways.
And then, there is Kengo Mori's way !
Ken and Jun, Momo and Erika, often
tee it up on their favorite golf course,
Musashino Country Club. When this
happens, the only thing safe from their
golf shots is the middle of the fairway.
Worms, trees, ducks, fish and birds are
in mortal danger!
Rumors to the contrary, Ken is no
cheapskate. The truth is, Ken may be
a bit frugal when it comes to less
important issues like retirement
planning, dental work and back – taxes
– but not when it comes to golf
equipment.
Ken learned long ago that golf is a
game you play to win. After all,
there's usually a wager or two at stake.
Over the years, Ken has learned to
hold his breath on his backswing, play
the ball where it lies, and never worry
about a little water.
Golf is not the most important thing in
Ken's life. He knows how to set
priorities and put things into
perspective. It is not true that Ken
once played an entire round of golf in
a tornado.
He played 17 holes – his golf clubs
blew away!
Every golfer dreams about a perfect
round of golf. This is a game where
every drive is down the middle of the
fairway, every green is hit in
regulation, and every putt is knocke
d into the center of the cup.
Some golfers even aspire to the
ultimate accomplishment – shooting
one's age. Ken has no trouble
shooting 44. The problem is, he doe
s it on the first few holes.
Most ''good'' golfers have a collection
of shots for every occasion. These
include a fade, a draw, a bank shot,
and a bunker shot.
Ken also has a collection of golf shots
including the worm burner, the skull,
and the pop-fly. His best shot is
called, ''Ooops, that's a mulligan," so
named by Jun, Momo and Erika.
Years ago, a golf handicap system was
invented. This system was designed to
let golfers of different skills and
abilities play against one another on an
equal basis. The idea is to take the
best 10 rounds of a golfer's last 20
rounds and use these to determine
one's handicap.
The system has one major flaw for
Ken: he has never played 10 rounds
of golf worth counting.
One of the reasons Ken plays golf is
for the exercise it provides. Other
activities were just not right for Ken.
He tried swimming, but kept sinking
to the bottom. He tried tennis, but the
net kept getting in the way. Jumping
to conclusions was fine, but tired him
out.
Golf provides exactly the right amount
of exercise for a finely tuned athletic
body like Ken's.
After most rounds of golf, Ken usually
joins Jun, Momo and Erika for a visit
to the 19th hole. This provides them
with a chance to rehash the shots of
the day, settle the wagers, and plan
their next outing.
The scene is usually the same. Ken
delays in the pro shop until the drinks
are bought. Then he rehashes all of
his unlucky bounces, pays off his
debts, and leaves just before it is his
round at the bar.
Despite his apparent lack of skill, Ken
still manages to hit the occasional
good golf shot. There is still talk
about the birdie Ken got last year
when he miraculously hit his shot out
of a deep bunker right into the hole.
Ken Mori and his partners play golf
for the love of the game. For them it's
an outing, a chance to get close to
nature, and a way to relieve tension.
Ken once said, ''Every time I hit the
golfball, my stress level goes down.''
Otherwise, why would he hit so many
shots?
Ken has always dreamed about writing
his own golf book. Some of the titles
he has considered include:
Ken's Tips on Lining Up Your 4th Putt
Golf and Divorce: Do It Ken's Way
The 19th Hole: How Ken Never Buys
Despite suffering through years and
years of frustration playing golf his
way, Ken has always remained a good
sport. His demeanor is beyond
reproach, he never loses control, and
his voice is never loud enough for
anyone over a mile away to hear.
This, together with the fact that Ken
always pays off his losing bets, makes
him the perfect partner.
The game of golf is certainly a
challenge to Ken Mori. Many friends,
including Jun, Momo and Erika, ask
why he even plays the game. The
reason is simple. Ken enjoys
watching miraculous events such as a
long putt dropping in or an iron shot
finding its way into the hole.
Ken would enjoy it even more if he
were the person hitting these shots.
Dear Ken:
Enjoy the game as you play it. Don't
let your scores ruin your day. Think
of golf the same way you think about
bowling: the higher the score, the
better.
With love from
Erika
