To focus by shutting out the rest of the world. Only the ball, the breeze, the club in their hand, and the ground beneath their feet exist.
To apply the lessons of golf off the course. Because life is a series of a few bad shots wedged between dozens of great ones. And it is the great shots that keep you in the game.
A golfer learns to respect nature, traditions, their opponent, and themselves.
A golfer learns from watching their opponent; another person’s perspective can alter the golfer’s next decision.
The scorecard is not a measurement of talent but proof of resolve.
A golfer learns something about themselves with each swing. The outcome is only as good as the effort given.
Self-control; some shots require power, others, a gentle finesse.
Self-confidence when they nail a drive or sink a long putt.
They can win, even when their opponent is ahead
GAME FOR LIFE
A person can learn to play golf at any age. Golf is not a sport played in youth, but for life.
A golfer learns one lousy shot does not ruin the game.
A golfer learns patience through centuries-old traditions and etiquette.
