Average is just as close to the bottom as it is to the top.
I used this today on a co-worker. I don’t know who said it, where I read it or when.
All I know is it is the truth. 100 % fact. No doubt.

We come to hole 11 and we hit our drives over by a river. Cold rushing water with Salmon swimming upstream to get to the place where they turn them into fish-oil capsules. A bear see’s us and starts to chase us. You are an average runner. I’m not. I don’t have to outrun the bear, I just have to outrun you.
