What happened to The Waggle?
I'm Mark Crossfield.
Something's on my mind.
I cannot get something off my mind.
We are talking golf, waggle style.
Are we just all a bit too addicted to this game?
So this is a funny game we play.
It takes over us in some ways, doesn't it?
Is it just me but when I try new clothes on,
and I don't mean just golf clothes,
any clothes, something really, really strange
just has to happen.
(laughs) What's that about?
I can't stop meself.
You do it as well, I know you do it as well.
So I've got a long journey.
I'm in my car.
I'm driving up the motorway and I'm concentrating on driving
but there's other things going on in my head as well.
I mean what do I see?
Are you seeing this as well?
Oh, hello, look at that.
That looks nice.
Oh, you could put a hole in there, couldn't you?
Maybe a tee shop to the right,
green in the distance, yes please.
Any field, nearly any place, even streets I can see it.
Just going to play about two clubs more
up this hill, wind off the left.
It's going to take me a little longer
to get to the shops I reckon.
It just doesn't leave.
It's just always in there.
Practice rings in golf,
almost as fun as actually going out and playing.
We do it in the garden.
We do it with funny implements.
We do it with whatever we can find in our hands.
(vacuum cleaner noise)
I put it out on social to find out if it was just me.
I wanted to share my golf addiction
and see if the rest of you were struggling.
And I had some fun responses back.
(laughs) Naked in front of the mirror.
You'd have to be so golf in love
for that to happen.
Watch the videos, always watch videos.
Follow me wherever I go.
Love you Golf Digest.
Click the links.
The links are down there usually.
I love Golf Digest.
Can't believe they're letting me have free run on each show.
