I know that's a lurid headline. My point: I'm writing two books at the same time. One is a sequel to The Bitcoin Gambit, the other is a Golf Book, called Hit Your Second Shot First.
In Hit Your Second Shot First I talk about what golfers think, as opposed to what they claim to think. Since golf was invented by Victorian Gents who majored in Hypocrisy at University, you're supposed to pretend that you always hope your opponent will do well. Quite the opposite is true, as underscored by this excerpt from the first draft:
It’s time to do your first admissions if you expect to improve as a player. Let’s face it: You hope your opponent misses that four-foot putt. You hope your opponent misses that two-foot putt. You hope your opponent hits the ball into the water. You hope your opponent hits a grounder off the tee. You can’t count on those things happening, and this isn’t college basketball, you can’t stand behind the hole with a giant foam finger that says: I’m number one and make a lot of noise. You need a different plan.
