BTW, I never experienced it in golf. There was always something about those windmills and clown faces that just scared me too much. ;-)
That gave me a much needed laugh! It's also funny how kids tend to love clowns while adults tend to be terrified of them. If you ever decide to get into real golf, know that it's a money pit but has been well worth it to me. As far as getting to know people, that's another essential similarity between Aikido and golf. You can get to know someone much better on the mat or on the course than you could in many other environments.
