“My Life as a Golf Marshall” : Life and Death on the Golf Course

As a Marshall you are dealing with many people of all ages and sexes. There are stories of life and death that may be exchanged. One day I encountered a group of golfers in their seventies. As we chatted one brother approached me with sadness in his eyes and volunteered, “You see that guy over there. He is my brother and has advanced brain cancer and this may be one of his last rounds.” He was a “scratch golfer” and now his game is shit”. Golf is not always about fun it can be a life and death story.
