Golfers Beware

If a golfer who’s clumsy and falls
Loses grip on the clubs that he hauls
	He might trip on a trap
	With some wood in his lap
And have problems in finding his balls!

* this is my original poem, which doesn't conform
to the contest syllable count. i like it better, though!

    for me they both sounded great. I don't know the reasons for the syllable restrictions since a good limerick's first lines can be anywhere from 8 to 10 syllables. I've even seen some with 11 in the first lines.
