We are not defined by our bad lies, but they do shape us. Despite the misses that lead us to unfortunate positions, the real story is how we recover. Even in the most desperate of scenarios, it is our ability to look onward toward the goal that matters most. We should view the detours made necessary by certain predicaments as simply just part of the journey. The difficult lies and desperate stances are what make our stories interesting. Without the occasional rise in tension, this wouldn’t be much of a game. It’s the drama of failure and subsequent hope for redemption that makes golf great. What a lesson for life as well.
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!
