Keeping your head in the game

During the drive to take Victoria to the doctor today, we covered the following topics in our conversation:

  • Tiger Woods and his caddy parting ways.
  • The importance of caddies to PGA Tour golfers.
  • The importance of golf to this region in particular and North Carolina in general.
  • The importance of Pinehurst No. 2 to golf.
  • The significance of Black Mountain’s golf course (at least at one time, the world’s only par-6 hole).
  • The fact that Black Mountain’s par-6 hole is a gimmick.
  • What a “gimmick” is.
  • Examples of other kinds of gimmicks.
  • The prevalence of gimmicks in politics and government.
  • The importance of mathematics in determining what is a gimmick and what is not.

And that was just the first half of the trip. Total trip distance: 4.7 miles.

Parenting. It’s a participatory sport.
