Liberty and Justice On The First Tee

Larry SnarkvilleAnalyst IDecember 1, 2009

Democracy rules on the first tee of every golf course.

It doesn't matter who you are.

I know because I've witnessed it first hand as a caddy. And I know it too as a player.

I've seen some of the most successful people from all walks of life alone on that first tee. I've seen some of the best players in the world on that first tee too. And they all have to go through the same things. The mental side of the game. The physical part. And the emotional side too.

It's a game played inside the head.

It doesn't matter what brings you there. You still have to face yourself. Alone. Over the ball.

Sometimes it works and you succeed. But sometimes it doesn't and you fail. But always you have to move on.

It's sort of like life.

That's why golf is the best game.
