Hit the Mute Button

Golfing is a life skill. You can use it your whole life in personal and business pursuits. I imagine that politicians and business leaders cut more deals in a golf cart than in an office. Unfortunately, it’s a skill I never learned very well.

I’m determined that my son, Will, will learn the game. But I won’t be teaching him. What could I teach him? So I called my friend Mike who is a golf pro.

Will and I did hit some balls at the driving range today. He would ask me tips and I refused to answer most questions. I could show him how to slice, but I’m a better dad than that. We’ll wait on Mike.

I’m not blameless, yet wouldn’t the world be a better place if we kept quiet on everything in which we really know nothing?


  1. You will never regret (him, you, me) from learning from the best you can. Save the middle e man who means well but who does not know the “real” answers and teaching methods..it is an investment in golf and Life that will pay serious dividends.
