Love this caddie response to Kevin’s golf nightmare, too…

30. “Will I roll one off the first tee? Will I embarrass myself in front of my playing partners? Will I shank one OB when I need a hole in a Match? Yes, I’m a basket case. But I love it.” — @SqwareState

29. “Why my chipping is trash no matter how much I practice.” — @tmarkey11

24. “My push pull hook fade. Oh, that’s kinda straight, maybe?” — @GordonRitter5

23. “I take golf seriously, but nothing in golf is so serious compared to the rest of my life to keep me up at night. Instead, when I can’t sleep for other reasons, my love for the game helps me fall asleep by picturing myself play through my next round shot by shot. #mentalgame” — @ParadiseGrows
