TRUTHS I HAVE LEARNED

I have been involved in the game of golf for over 50 years.  I got started when I got hit in the eye with a baseball bat and decided to spend time playing a safer sport.  Along the way I have learned many things about people and this UBER ADDITIVE GAME called golf.  Here is a short list of what I have learned:

 

  • Golf is a difficult game to learn and impossible to MASTER (think.... golf is hard).

  • Golf is a game for a lifetime because you can play for a lifetime and it takes a lifetime to learn.

  • Golf is more fun when you are good.

  • When you are trying to achieve a goal, EVERYTHING MATTERS.

  • Improvement results from enjoying what you are doing, not the other way around.

  • Feel and Real in your golf swing are different.

  • Fundamentally solid golf swings age better than those that rely on compensations.

  • Golf, like LIFE, is not always fair.  Accept it.

  • FAILURE IS AN IMPORTANT STEP TO SUCCESS.

  • Great golfers are made not born that way.

  • PASSION and COMITTMENT almost always trump RAW TALENT.

  • Very few things are achieved in life without help from others.

  • The joy you get from helping others far outshines the joy you receive from helping yourself.
