THE VALUE OF GOLF IN MY LIFE

Golf, Life & Fearlessness 

by Shivas Irons Society member Evelyn Williams

(Excerpt from a letter to a friend)

Thank you so much for your support and your kindness. You know, I took up golf to learn two things: Fearlessness, and PLAY. Both were missing in my life, and golf has made such a difference in both areas.   When I say that I’m not fearful of this thing they call cancer, I really mean it. None of will get out of here alive. I’d be more afraid of not having LIVED life to the fullest. I don’t want a life of regret, and I think I’m doing pretty good (so far).

I’ll tell you what’s funny. Every time I end up in a conversation with someone (usually a guy) about whether or not they’re a golfer, they almost always tell me what a BAD golfer they are. And then they ask me about my game and I say that I am a FINE GOLFER. They assume I have a very low handicap and they ask about it – and I proudly tell them I have a 36 index and I’ve played some of the best courses in the world. They always look so shocked. And then I tell them I’m a FINE golfer because I play fast, I know the rules and the courtesies and I can play golf with anyone. TRUTH! It’s such a shock to them that they don’t know what to say, and honestly – they probably don’t believe me. But I have found it to be true and I credit you and Fred (Shoemaker) for giving me that point of view and for helping me find courage and fearlessness.

In gowf ye see the essence of what the world itself demands.
