“The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and pay the penalty.” – Proverbs 27:12 I tend to pay the penalty a lot in golf. Whether it’s machismo, stupidity or operator error, I can’t tell you. I seem to think that I can do anything with the golf ball, that is, until it comes to execution. Occasionally, as the proverbial wisdom goes, it’s wise to play smart and within myself. Who knew golf was biblical?Golf_danger

A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play, his labour and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself he always seems to be doing both. Enough for him that he does it well.
