a golfer without equal!

October 20, 2018

Page4/Page5
The game of golf, as we know it, was developed in Scotland in the early 1700's. Since its humble beginnings, the game has exploded in popularity around the world.
From its legendary stars like Slammin' Sammy Snead to the current crop of rising young stars on the PGA and LPGA tours, the game has been played many ways.

And then, there is Savvy Johnson's way!

Page6/Page7
Savvy and Jessica, often tee it up on their favorite golf course, Pebble Beach. When this happens, the only thing safe from their golf shots is the middle of the fairway. Worms, trees, ducks, fish and birds are in mortal danger!

Page8/Page9
Rumors to the contrary, Savvy is no cheapskate. The truth is, Savvy may be a bit frugal when it comes to less important issues like retirement planning, dental work and back - taxes - but not when it comes to golf equipment.

Page10/Page11
Savvy learned long ago that golf is a game you play to win. After all, there's usually a wager or two at stake.

Over the years, Savvy has learned to hold her breath on her backswing, play the ball where it lies, and never worry about a little water.

Page12/Page13
Golf is not the most important thing in Savvy's life. She knows how to set priorities and put things into perspective. It is not true that Savvy once played an entire round of golf in a tornado.

She played 17 holes - her golf clubs blew away!

Page14/Page15
Every golfer dreams about a perfect round of golf. This is a game where every drive is down the middle of the fairway, every green is hit in regulation, and every putt is knocked into the center of the cup.

Some golfers even aspire to the ultimate accomplishment - shooting one's age. Savvy has no trouble shooting 37. The problem is, she does it on the first few holes.

Page16/Page17
Most "good" golfers have a collection of shots for every occasion. These include a fade, a draw, a bank shot, and a bunker shot.

Savvy also has a collection of golf shots including the worm burner, the skull, and the pop-fly. Her best shot is called, "Ooops, that's a mulligan," so named by Jessica.

Page18/Page19
Years ago, a golf handicap system was invented. This system was designed to let golfers of different skills and abilities play against one another on an equal basis. The idea is to take the best 10 rounds of a golfer's last 20 rounds and use these to determine one's handicap.

The system has one major flaw for Savvy: she has never played 10 rounds of golf worth counting.

Page20/Page21
One of the reasons Savvy plays golf is for the exercise it provides. Other activities were just not right for Savvy. She tried swimming, but kept sinking to the bottom. She tried tennis, but the net kept getting in the way. Jumping to conclusions was fine, but tired her out.

Golf provides exactly the right amount of exercise for a finely tuned athletic body like Savvy's.

Page22/Page23
After most rounds of golf, Savvy usually joins Jessica for a visit to the 19th hole. This provides them with a chance to rehash the shots of the day, settle the wagers, and plan their next outing.

The scene is usually the same. Savvy delays in the pro shop until the drinks are bought. Then she rehashes all of her unlucky bounces, pays off her debts, and leaves just before it is her round at the bar.

Page24/Page25
Despite her apparent lack of skill, Savvy still manages to hit the occasional good golf shot. There is still talk about the birdie Savvy got last year when she miraculously hit her shot out of a deep bunker right into the hole.

Page26/Page27
Savvy Johnson and her partners play golf for the love of the game. For them it's an outing, a chance to get close to nature, and a way to relieve tension. Savvy once said, "Every time I hit the golfball, my stress level goes down."

Otherwise, why would she hit so many shots?

Page28/Page29
Savvy has always dreamed about writing her own golf book. Some of the titles she has considered include:

Savvy's Tips on Lining Up Your 4th Putt

Golf and Divorce: Do It Savvy's Way


The 19th Hole: How Savvy Never Buys

Page30/Page31
Despite suffering through years and years of frustration playing golf her way, Savvy has always remained a good sport. Her demeanor is beyond reproach, she never loses control, and her voice is never loud enough for anyone over a mile away to hear.

This, together with the fact that Savvy always pays off her losing bets, makes her the perfect partner.

Page32/Page33
The game of golf is certainly a challenge to Savvy Johnson. Many friends, including Jessica, ask why she even plays the game. The reason is simple. Savvy enjoys watching miraculous events such as a long putt dropping in or an iron shot finding its way into the hole.

Savvy would enjoy it even more if she were the person hitting these shots.

Page34/Page35
Dear Savvy:

Enjoy the game as you play it. Don't let your scores ruin your day. Think of golf the same way you think about bowling: the higher the score, the better.
