    Golf leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering. This is the path to the dark side. This judge is wise.

    wtf? Maybe the parents are jackasses, but if the kid wants to play, and has ability, this judge isn't punishing them, he's screwing with her life. How the hell can he justify forbidding the development of a natural talent? No way this should be allowed to stand.

    Besides, if the kid is really any good in a couple years the parents can fight about controlling all the endorsement money the kid earns.

    The only thing I can imagine is that there's more to the story than what's in this story. As it is, I cannot comprehend why the kid is being punished for the misdeeds of her parents.

    Someone in the comments speculated that since the dad went in without a lawyer and was just supporting her golfing, the wife and her lawyer played the "he only cares about her golf game and neglects everything else she should be doing" card, swaying the judge to decide limiting golf might be in the child's best interest. Given some other facts presented about the father I could definitely see that line of thinking. Still doesn't sit right, though.

    Does the judge even have that authority? What's she going to do to the girl if she plays in a tournament, throw her in jail for contempt?

    Most likely hit a contempt charge against the parent who allowed the child to play.

    It's not like the child wants to shoot guns. Or something.

    We've got a judge in Georgia telling a guy to jerk off in court and another one in VA telling a 10 year old golf prodigy she can't play golf.

    Seems like there should be a middle ground.
