The greatest thing about playing good golf is how quickly we forget about our bad golf. Sometimes when my swing gets in sync and the putter gets hot, I can start to believe that I’m the best player in town. I know that isn’t true because on other occasions I get the vicious shanks, chili dip pitch shots, and three-putt from ten feet. The best days are when all those demons fade into the rearview and the only thing I can see are birdies. Golf like that makes me feel alive. It lifts my hopes and inspires me to play on forever. I’d like to have more of those rounds.
Each day I post a short golf story like this on my Instagram page @JayRevellWrites – now I’m bringing those musings to my website. Be sure to check in each day for my latest expressions on the game!
