The back nine (golf lingo for the last nine holes) is up on the foothills of the Wasatch Mountains. It's pretty rugged, so they require a gas-powered golf cart rental to go up there. But to be honest, I felt like we needed a mule and a Sherpa to safely traverse those holes.
I didn't know much about golf until Sloan helped me out. And, really, I still don't know much. But here is what I do know:
- You tee off with a driver. A driver is the most useful club with which to whack at the bushes when you lose your ball, because of its large surface area and length.
- You hit from the fairway with an iron. Because of its heft, an iron is helpful with solidly pounding at the ground in frustration.
- You putt on the green with a putter. It's useless for anything but overshooting the hole.
Also, remember to wear sunscreen and act classy in everything you do.
