I get knocked down but I get up again! Geo 56 learned the hard way of a double secret probation which had been leveled against him by life itself. Even the commish had no power to deny this sanction (who knew?). The imposed penalty is harsher than that imposed by the all-powerful NCAA against Bill Self! It is harsher than the righteous NFL commissioner's punishment of Kareem Hunt! It is even more harsh than NBA commissioner Silver's shunning of Ja Morant! As GOBA and the rest of the civilized world waited to see Geo 56's response to this injurious turn of events, Geo 56 figuratively made the turn and went low! O.K., truth be told, there figuratively may have been a ball or two in the woods and a top here and there (But remember, tops are better than chunks). I digress. How did Geo 56 respond to this figurative bad lie? What Geo 56 did was kick some by-pass ass! He might get knocked down but he gets up again! Nothing's ever gonna keep him down! He drinks a Coke drink, he drinks a water drink. He sings a song that reminds him of a good putt. He sings a song that reminds him of a better putt. (I think there is a song here!) In all cases, Geo 56 said "Game on b***h!" to anyone or anything which would put him on double secret probation. GOBA salutes you! And when you see all those people in Times Square cheering, it's not for a new year, it's for you Geo 56!

Sweetness makes a case Finally a course which is not too long for The Sweetness! As the 2023 GOBA season drew to a close, The Sweetness found himself in an ideal situation, a short course with the tee boxes up. The result of three straight rounds at this Putt-Putt course were three rounds in the 70s. Now, we know that we will hear the traditional, "You still have to make the shots" malarky but you don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at Applebee's, you want those tee boxes up. You need those tee boxes up. We use words like white tees, roll 'em in the fairway, leaf rule. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending our handicaps. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who chips and putts under the very spreadsheet that I provide and then asks for strokes for the most frivolus of things. I would rather you just said "GOB" and drove to your ball. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a mid-iron and play it down. Either way, I don't give a damn what tee box you think you are entitled to! (Might make a good movie scene!)
