“Our greatest glory consists not in never falling,
but in rising every time we fall.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

It’s amazing how many experiences one can have in a round of golf or two. I got the rare opportunity to play two days in a row thanks to the holidays. I had hopes… I played in 40 mph winds on Wednesday, so I called that a “practice round.” Thursday I had that all too familiar experience of not playing nearly as well as I know I can. I know I’m not the only one who has had that experience. (Please add your comments below if you like.)

Perhaps the most interesting challenge is still learning and learning to remember to swing easy. In a way, I’m teasing myself by starting to take on a role that I call “The Ambassador of Ease.” It’s a joke because I’m still learning, but I do know that there’s a sweet spot there, in golf and in life. I almost turned in my 3 wood yesterday, and then realized that I just need to choke down on it an inch or so and take an easy swing. Swinging easy works so much better! I’m sharing that with you now in order to help me learn to remember that, always. Thanks for reading.
