This is making the rounds on the Internet:
I am a member of golf's lower 99%.
I am an indifferent golfer, and there's no way I could ever make it to
the professional level. I will never put in the practice time to be
the best. I will never have the shots, skills, or mental toughness to
make it in the sport. I just never felt like working all that hard at
However, I am a part of the golfing community and, as such, feel I
should be paid by the top 1% of golfers for what I do. It isn't fair
that those players who have worked harder, have studied the game, have
better equipment and are more skilled and dedicated should make all
that BIG money.
Where's my share? I'm a Victim!
The top 1% should pay for my club memberships and green fees and
lessons, buy me new clubs, balls, clothes and shoes, and pay me some
of their winnings. They can afford it. They are "The Rich". The whole
system should be changed to accommodate people like me. I think we
should get together and occupy a golf course and demand that those who
are better at what they do, pay for us who generally suck. Whining
should get us something - maybe we'll make the cover of Time Magazine,
garnish some public sympathy. Heck, during this election year we may
even get a law or two passed by legislators who want our votes.
PS. Don't mention this to tennis players. We thought of it first.
