Must overcome all hazards, difficult lies, circumstances, nature, thoughts, emotions, and temptations to achieve his own goal of par score in a round of golf.
The result can be under par, over par or even par, based on your oneness with those moments of action (72 shots) similarly in life you are a solo player-facing above factors to live the way you want to live thus apply RULE and live every moment in oneness with it, is the key.

Life is fun this way and you shall then live life sportingly and not worriedly.
