“Fore!” – exclamation used to warn anyone standing or moving in the flight of a golf ball
Every golfer knows that when they here the word “fore”, it becomes every man for himself.
There are those that immediately dive for cover, those that stare blankly in the direction of the call, and those that don’t pay attention until the ball lands inches from where they are standing. This is in many ways like life. As we play the game of life, things are constantly thrown at us from different directions. Some of the things we see coming, like the weather, but others we can’t control and are just suddenly dropped on us, like duffers on the adjacent hole. The game of golf is unique in that you will never experience the same round twice and you will never have the same shot twice. The most important aspect of golf is not the amazing tee shot you just hit, but how you approach your next shot. Just like life, it is not what happens to you that is important, but what you do about it. Overreacting to a bad situation and dwelling on the past will just make matters worse. Out of all the things that can go wrong on a golf course, being fearful is the worst. Forget about the bad shots and focus on what you can do to make up for it. Everyone gets bad breaks and what separates the successful is what they do to overcome.
This blog was created by 4 high school students that love the game of golf. We are going to post things that appeal to all kinds of people, but primarily focus on golf related topics. We hope to both inspire and humor. If you have any questions, comments, or ideas for future posts, let us know. Thank you and remember that a bad day of golf is always better than a day at school/work.
