A Long Shot It Shall Be....

a: Entrepreneur ~
b: playing a 500 yard gold hole

What: Playing gold is difficult. The short holes are easiest, 'cause usually you can see the target and this makes aiming the ball that much easier. But shooting into the unknown, as in a very long par 5 takes a quantum leap in skill. Building a start up has the same qualities. The payoff is big if you are successful in a small amount of time, but like the par 5 hole, it RARE to hit the hole or even the green in 1 or 2 stokes. It usually takes many stokes any trips to the rough to get on the ball onto the green and into the hole.
