that looked easy on the telly
i've made the tiny correction to aim that should take account of the fact i got a 2 last time, i'm steady, let's do this
- Every time I've tried to impress onlookers with a 'Watch this!' dive, I have come a massive cropper
- How the feck do the judges manage to identify all of the elements and grade them so accurately??
Just ridiculous. I think I'd go round in less if I didn't have any clubs and could just throw it or roll it. Stupid sport.
had my first time on a 'real' course a few weeks ago. lost 3 balls on the first hole
could barely hit the ball, it is a really unnatural movement. Putting is just painfully frustrating as you are at the mercy of bumps in the grass. Fucking waste of time.
Was only 9 holes, thought it would be far too short. Took about 3 hours.
And so on
And so forth
it doesn't look easy necessarily on the telly, but I thought I could at least get the odd red in. The tables are enourmous and I had to use the rest loads.
I remember being relatively shit hot at pool when I was at uni and deciding to give snooker a go. It's pretty boring when your highest break is the other player fouling.
I can confirm it is not as easy as it looks on the telly
Quite upset I didn't inherit her talent :(
You must be gutted
real lack of serious journalism
looks like: star wars with face colanders
feels like: rigidly organised skipping in a sweaty sack while yelping
Incredibly hard to get it to land sticking in the ground.
Easy and accessible as a keep fit on your own thing, competitive running looks horrible.
It's just lobbing a big frisbee, right?
Couldn't get it out of the nets.
good at hitting and catching, cannot throw for shit.
People keep giving me odd looks in the pool.
