One of my very favorite events to cover during the calendar year is the Atomic City Invitational.
First of all, covering golf isn’t too stressful. As golfer Bruce Norman, who won the senior men’s competition this year, told me as he saw me buzzing along in my little golf cart in between holes, “must be tough, riding around and drinking sodas.”
Actually, I’ve always got it in the back of my mind that I need to not run over anything or anyone or get the cart into a wreck somehow. Golf carts are not the most stable of vehicular transport and I’ve seen more than one clip on “America’s Funniest Home Videos” about people rolling their carts on not-that-treacherous terrain. I certainly don’t want to look like an idiot who can’t pilot a glorified Big Wheel.
But more than that, I enjoy watching people play golf who actually know what they’re doing.
Yes, it’s true. I’m horrible at golf. I enjoy playing the game a great deal, but I stink like the midsummer breeze off the landfill. The next time I break 120 will be the first time I break 120. Yep. It’s that bad.
Plus, I get to meet some interesting people along the way. This year, I met a man by the name of Leary Lentz.
