    Not a score. An age. After having just played a round of golf with an 89-year-old women, I can say it's probably possible to play this game longer than any other sport. It certainly puts a lot of things into perspective about your own game, seeing someone who's out there, just happy to be playing. Golf reduced to it's basics -- Hit it, find it, hit it again, etc. The longest distance she could hit it? About 89 yards. And yet she got on in two, took two putts for a bogey four on a tough, heavily trapped 171 yd. par three. Some things transcend your own round of golf.
