Retired ( 22 years ago!!) doctor----I was a consultant radiologist in hospitals here in the UK.
Have played golf for 64 years----once scratch, now 5 h'cap and having difficulty hitting the ball out of my shadow....but as ever, I live in hope.
It's a form of meditation. The golf club assumes the role of a teddy bear, or toy car, and the golfer regresses in age appropriately. It recalls the age of wonder...when simple acts seemed both profound and mundane simultaneously.
