I am not a golf person. Like most people, I can name Tiger Woods, but no way in hell I can tell you who won the Masters.
What I am a fan of is a good party, and even though I can’t name 99 percent of the PGA Tour, I can with complete confidence tell you that good golf tournaments are the best spectator experience in sports. What’s that you say? How could a game that’s about as action-packed as lunch at the senior center be the best sport to attend? Easy. Because the PGA Tour knows it doesn’t have bone-crushing tackles or fast-break dunks, it’s made some tournaments week-long parties, complete with free-flowing booze, gourmet food, star-studded concerts, and viewing areas mere feet from the players.
