When we walk a golf course, we find things that otherwise prove elusive. We find quiet, calmness, and a deeper connection to nature. There are also many personal revelations found along the trail. Our best thoughts are made more apparent through the steps we take. As we walk around a golf course, we can also walk around the feelings, ideas, and desires that populate our mind. Golf is a search for answers and very few of them have much to do with the game being played. The walking golfer is looking for something else entirely. We go on walks as a means to sort through our troubles and scheme for the what may come next in life. With each pace we make, clarity becomes more attainable. Through golf, we seek to find the next iteration of ourselves one step at a time. Our feet show us the way forward.
If you enjoy these daily stories, you might like my new book, The Nine Virtues of Golf. It debuted earlier this Summer as the #1 new release golf book on Amazon.
