Golf Game

You need not be the best player
to have impact.
Just learn how to strike.

The goal? Play it simply.
Keep them hanging --
that's a tenet worth adopting.

And address it on a single plane.
That reduces movement.
(In general, it would appear that limbo
is a good state for golfers.)

It's a precision game, after all.
One must learn
efficiency in hitting.
If you take too many 
swings, you lose.

Your approach considered a good one
by the experts. Just go in. 

Calculating a handicap is 
often complicated --
And when it comes to yours, 
I don't know how to begin

Or end.
