Just a quick post to point you to an excellent SI Mobile commentary by Joe Posnanski who offers what is to me an exquisite perspective on that “go for it” or “lay up” decision we all have to make on the course (and in life) as demostrated with remarkable confidence and pizazz by Phil Mickelson on Sunday. Here’s the bottom line for your esteemed contemplation:

“A great shot is when you pull it off. A smart shot is when you don’t have the guts to try it.”
— Phil Mickelson

Posnanski’s post is “Shot on 13th Hole (at the Masters) Symbolizes Mickelson.” Enjoy.

And while I’m posting, while watching Masters TV coverage, I watched a story about an Augusta National caddy named Tripp Bowden who has written an apparently wonderful book, “Freddie and Me: Life Lessons from Freddie Bennett, Augusta National’s Legendary Caddie Master.” I started it last night via the Amazon Kindle app on my iPhone and was loving it. Anyway, Tripp said on TV that Freddie would say:

“You can lay up when you’re dead.”
— Freddie Bennett

Food for thought.
