Lori Isley Lynn and Ronald Copland golf


Lori and I picked up the game of golf and few years ago, but this year we have actually been able to take the clubs out with some frequency. So to mark the start of the US Open, I have a few quotations on this obsessive and typically frustrating pastime and the embrace of failure…

  • You can’t win the game, you can only play the game;” (thanks Ronald, mentoring Lori above) Golf as a metaphor for life as Bagger advises Junuh and his young protégé Hardy
  • Professional golf is the only sport where, if you win 20% of the time, you’re the best.” Jack Nicklaus (thanks Aidan)
