This is a perfect “take it to the ridiculous” comparison to some of the recent protests.
I am a member of golf’s lower 99%. I am an indifferent golfer, and there’s no way I could ever make it to the professional level. I will never put in the practice time to be the best. I will never have the shots, skills, or mental toughness to “make it” in the sport. I just never felt like working all that hard at it.
However, I am a part of the golfing community and, as such, feel I should be paid by the top 1% of golfers for what I do. It isn’t fair that those players who have worked harder, have studied the game, have better equipment, and are more skilled and dedicated should make all that BIG money. Where’s my share? I’m a Victim! The top 1% should pay for my club memberships, green fees, lessons, and buy me new clubs, balls, clothes and shoes, and pay me some of their winnings. They can afford it. They are “The Rich”.
The whole system should be changed to accommodate people like me. I think we should get together and occupy a golf course and demand that those who are better at what they do, pay for us who generally stink.
I think we should get some paint and cover streets and parking lots with “BAD GOLFERS MATTER”. “BGM”. I don’t even play golf, but my ancestors did, so I’m looking for some REPARATION PAYMENTS!
