In a seminar several days ago, I was asked how golf has affected my life.
I was somewhat taken aback, as I had never been asked this question before and I had to hesitate for a while — longer than it takes me to make a downhill breaking putt on a fast green – before I could answer.
This delay was important, especially because the audience was made up of youngsters visiting from overseas, in the process of finding their way in life through golf by becoming familiar with the entire golfing scene, not just playing golf – an activity with which they were already very familiar and accomplished.
To me the answer seemed obvious because golf has been a very personal and influential part of my life for many, many years and has given me the opportunity to use my talents to make a positive contribution to this wonderful game in return. To this effect, I answered the question.
