GOLF & COFFEE
Every seasoned golfer has had that 6AM tee time. It isn't quite acceptable to pop a cold one yet; that's about 9:30AM. So what is a thirsty golfer to drink? Coffee to the rescue!
For as long as golf has been mainstream, coffee has been right there, keeping the players warm and their swings fluid.
They call it GOLF, cause all the other four letter words were taken.
SHORT HISTORY OF GOLF
A golf-like game, apocryphal, is recorded as taking place on 26 February 1297, in Loenen aan de Vecht, where the Dutch played a game with a stick and leather ball. The winner was whoever hit the ball with the least number of strokes into a target several hundred yards away. Some scholars argue that this game of putting a small ball in a hole in the ground using golf clubs was also played in 17th-century Netherlands, and that this predates the game in Scotland. There are also other reports of earlier accounts of a golf-like game from continental Europe.
Today, marks the start of the U.S. Masters Tournament, and we simply would like to tip our cap to those talented players stepping up to the tee.
