Nothing too elaborate today, but still simply deep. Growing up around golf (my pop was a pro in his own mind!), I picked up a few things here and there:
- Definitely learned HOW TO SWEAR at a very young age.
- Became adept at properly mowing our 250-yard driving range and green with a PUSH MOWER.
- Realized that throwing the club IS NOT part of the game.
- Came to appreciate that golf is one of the most challenging sports- it requires the BODY, MIND & SPIRIT to work in concert moment by moment.
- Augusta is indeed the end-all-be-all of courses and experiences… to SHARE with YOUR DAD!
- And I now understand the COUNTLESS METAPHORS of life which 18 holes can deliver.
So with that in mind, here’s a few words from (Austin’s own) the late Mr. Penick from “Harvey Penick’s Little Red Book” (Copyright 1992 by Harvey Penick, Bud Shrake, and Helen Penick)
“I learn teaching from teachers. I learn golf from golfers. I learn winning from coaches. There are many good teachers of golf who teach quite differently from each other. I prefer listening to one who teaches differently than I do. I might learn from him. I already know my own way.”
