It was a sunny Saturday morning on the golf course and I was at the beginning of my pre-shot routine, visualizing my upcoming shot, when a voice came over the loudspeaker.
"Would the gentleman on the women's tee back up to the men's tee please!"
I was still deep in my routine, seemingly impervious to the interruption.
Ignoring it didn't work; a moment later, again came the announcement: "Would the gentleman on the women's tee kindly back up to the men's tee!"
I simply ignored the guy and kept concentrating. The third time, the man was practically yelling: "Would the man on the women's tee please back up to the men's tee!!"
I finally stopped, turned, looked through the clubhouse window directly at the person with the microphone and shouted back, "Would the idiot in the clubhouse kindly shut up and let me play my second shot?!"
