There have been many great golfers over the years and from them have come some sage insights into golf and life. I thought you might like to read these below from Bobby Jones, one of the giants in golf history.
Jones was the most successful amateur golfer ever to compete on a national and international level. He is the only golfer credited with a single-season Grand Slam, and was the dominant player of the 1920s. After retiring from competitive golf in 1930, Jones founded and helped design the Augusta National Golf Club, and also co-founded the Masters Tournament.
“Many shots are spoiled at the last instant by efforts to add a few more yards.”
“One reason golf is such an exasperating game is that a thing we learned is so easily forgotten, and we find ourselves struggling year after year with faults we had discovered and corrected time and again.”
and the last, and most insightful,…..
“Golf is the closest game to the game we call life. You get bad breaks from good shots; you get good breaks from bad shots – but you have to play the ball where it lies.”
