I need some help. Working on a final draft and I have hit a brick wall with a single line/word/expression. I have two characters who play out a weekly game of golf which has turned into something more than just a game. It has become a highly personalised struggle between the two characters, with all sorts at stake, and I want to express that with a classical expression or foreign word or similar that donates such a contest. And I am stumped. Absolutely been racking my brains and have hit a complete mind freeze. Even Norman the Muse has not been able to help me out. Open to all and any suggestions as I can work in whatever hits the right buttons. Thanks in advance.
