Last week I saw the movie Lone Survivor which is based on a true story of US Navy Seals. It was very suspenseful, exciting, and very realistic. It tells the story of a team of four Seals that get trapped in the mountains of Afghanistan surrounded by Taliban. I felt that it really showed the strength and bravery of our soldiers and revealed the themes of teamwork and determination. They must work together to fight for their lives. Even against all odds, they are determined to fight for their families and many whom they don’t even know. Sadly, like the name of the movie says, only one of them survives.
I know you may think that golf is not a team sport. But it definitely helps to have some friends to support you, help you with your swing, and play with. In some instances, there are team golf tournaments and if you play for high school or college, there are teams. I love being on my schools golf team and we have tons of fun. Even though we are all rivals, and trying to beat each other, it just makes us stronger because we try harder. Golfing can build friendships that will last a lifetime.
For those of you that have finals this week and are finishing up your first semester of school, stay focused. Your almost there.
