Great Day

Golf is such a wonderful game.  Jason Day, a troubled boy, who had lost his father, showed potential.  His mother sacrificed to send him to a good school where his potential could be realized, and a wonderful father figure and friend found.

Hard work, determination, and belief are rewarded at last with a win for the ages.  Not only did he post the lowest seventy two hole total ever in a Major, he did it playing head to head with the best player in the game.  I admit, I found myself shedding a few tears of joy for this young man.  He earned this victory.  It didn't come easily, and because it didn't come easily it was that much sweeter.

Jason Day is now number three in the world, behind Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy; all twenty-somethings.  And, chances are there will be much more to come from this determined young man.  He's now one of the big three.  He's found the winning formula, which he said before the round was to have more fun as he played.  Work hard, dream big, never give up, and remember to have fun.  Who'd have thunk it?

Golf is in a very good place.
