Golf – What is it Called That You Like?
What is the title of the song called “Why is it called golf?” I asked my husband this question recently, and he told me that it was an expression used by a very good friend of his. So I asked him again, and he told me that it was actually a phrase from a famous song.
Of course, as we all know, that’s not really useful phraseology, but he hadn’t given me any real advice on the subject. So here’s a helpful hint, which might help you out with your own questions when you ask yourself, “What is the title of the song I heard?”
The short answer to your question is – it’s just a phrase, but it means one thing – one reason. It’s very similar to the phrase “What is it about that I like?” or “What are the main reasons for my liking this story?” The one reason for golf is – I like golf.
Now, if you’re a golfer, and are of a certain age, you might recognize that the phrase “What is it about that I like?” was referring to the novels and stories written by authors such as Agatha Christie and John Irving. Although these authors might not have mentioned golf directly, their readers might have heard about golf. And even if they haven’t – people who like golf might still have heard some references from these authors, such as in Agatha Christie books, such as the Sherlock Holmes stories.
The phrase “What is it about that I like?” might be used when you ask someone why they like golf, but in some cases it might mean something completely different. For example, someone might say, “Because golf is so much fun,” when you ask them about the title of their favorite book.
Many others have stated that the phrase “What is it about that I like?” is a question that you can’t answer unless you’ve read that book or seen that movie, and that people can also make up their own answers. Just remember that the one reason for golf is – I like golf. If you enjoy playing golf, you’ll be happy to know that it’s possible to have a good time while enjoying the sport.
In terms of its origins, it is a unique phrase, but it’s one that has been around for a long time. We haven’t come up with the idea of naming a sports sport after a book or a movie that many decades, but we have come up with a couple of different names for the sport – American football, rugby, cricket, etc. Maybe someday, we will come up with a new name for golf, and it might be more interesting than “what is it about that I like?”
Whatever the case, what is it about that you like? If you’re a golfer, I’m sure you’ll find a good reason that you’ll enjoy, whether it’s the title of a movie, book, or song. And if you’re not a golfer, and you want to find out what it’s called that you like, you can always look for the book, or the movie, or the song, and find out for yourself.
