Watching Lefty win yesterday was quite refreshing. His score of five under baffled his fellow players. But not Phil. He found his swing. You could see it in his whole persona.
This reminded me of words from The Legend of Bagger Vance. Inside each and every one of us is one true authentic swing… Somethin’ we was born with… Somethin’ that’s ours and ours alone… Somethin’ that can’t be taught to ya or learned… Somethin’ that’s got to be remembered… Over time the world can, rob us of that swing… It gets buried inside us under all our wouldas and couldas and shouldas… Some folks even forget what their swing was like.
Your music is found and made in your swing. And if you’re lost, your swing will guide you to your music.
Here’s the catch. None of us know how many practice swings it took Phil to hoist that trophy yesterday.
And the one guy that does know???? He’s the one holding the trophy.
