In a perfect place

In the October edition of Golf Magazine, Dr. Joe Parent says that happiness on the course is the key to lower golf scores -- much lower.

We are hoping that Parent's article provides some evidence of what a certain population of weed smoking golf caddies and other brahs have been convinced of for years: their golf game shows flashes of brilliance after blazing a bowl of the bubonic chronic. It's safe to assume Joe Parent's parents didn't raise him to be a marijuana advocate, but his happiness study begs the question ... is it possible marijuana enhances performance on the golf course?

Cannabis is currently listed on the PGA's banned substance list, so either the PGA thinks performance enhancement is possible, or they are big supporters of the war on drugs and are helping the pointless and expensive struggle of trying to eliminate the evil plant off the face of the Earth. Either way, you can bet some touring professionals were disappointed (maybe devastated) when they found out rippin' an after round billy of the sticky icky isn't an option. Johnny Miller even jokingly hinted that players were more likely to test positive for THC than steroids.

Even if weed doesn't directly enhance your golf game, golfing while blazed can teach us all a valuable lesson: Your mood might be more important than your coordination. As one brah so eloquently put it, "After I rip it, I'm just in a perfect place out there." Until next time ... Find your perfect place and keep the greens ablaze.

Despite what Joe Parent says about happiness on the course, most will agree that a blunt the size of Carl Spackler's will not help your game. And neither will cannonballing your hits with booze.
