Harry and I watched the US Open (golf) playoff today. The playoff was between Tiger Woods and Rocco (somebody), a 45 year old golfer. They played 18 playoff holes which ended in another tie. This sent them to a sudden death playoff. In the sudden death Tiger won at the seventh (the first sudden death hole) hole. Those of you who are interested already know this and those of you who aren't could care less.
That's not what this post is about. My point is that Tiger's peers and usual competitors had failed to overcome his expertise even though Tiger was playing for the first time following knee surgery. An older player, who is currently almost unheard of on this tour, not only managed to force the US Open into an 18 hole playoff, he held Tiger for that 18 holes, too. Tiger did win in the sudden playoff but he had to work to win. True, Tiger is just getting over knee surgery but none of the world's top players managed to force a playoff - just the man with a cool attitude and a "can do" mind set.
Tiger has reason to be proud of his hard won championship. But we can all take a lesson from Rocco. With a "can do" mind set and the willingness to go out and work towards our goals we can all achieve the level to which we aspire.
Unfortunately all I aspire to these days is to do old lady things. Ambitious old fart, aren't I?
Have a wonderful day and do something fun.
