Over the years I've enjoyed observing the 140 character thoughts and opinions expressed about golf... and I've often been entertained by them. Frequently funny and sometimes surprising, tweets, when looked at collectively, can certainly tell a story.
That's the idea behind Twitter Trend Weekly, a new feature I'll be presenting here each Wednesday. I'm thinking it might be a fun way to liven up the middle of the week and a good chance to see what folks are saying about the the sport we love.
This week's topic is #howtomakemesmile
The course alone seems to make some girls happy...
#HowToMakeMeSmile take me to the golf course

...while others want to make sure they get the full experience.
#HowToMakeMeSmile take me on the first date to a golf course, driving range, whatever. As long as we can use real golf clubs.

Guys, apparently, like to have an audience...
#howtomakemesmile come to my golf tournaments
— Larry Fisherman (@B_Sanner) March 5, 2013
...even if it's just an audience of one admiring female.
#HowToMakeMeSmile go golfing with me even if you don't golf we can talk while I play

It's the golf swag that does it for some...
#HowToMakeMeSmile buy me new golf clothes or shoes!!! #GolferPrincess

...while others apparently just want to see their rivals under the wheels of a golf buggy.
#HowToMakeMeSmile run katie over with a golf cart.

Alrighty then. "Twitter Trend Weekly" will be back again next Wednesday with more hashtag-inspired observations in 140 characters or less.
