I looked for calm and quiet when I arrived at the ANA Lounge in Tokyo. Then I had an encounter with this annoying person. Sensing my annoyance, the gods mercifully offered me countless varieties of sake, a robust selection of ramen, Japanese whisky, a beautiful shower, and the world's greatest toilet. Little did I know that after this stop, my peace would be no more.

I have golfed all over the world. The Gulf Harbour Country Club is notable because of its impeccable scenery.
