Rainy Day Reading

Rain and rain and too much work. The only golf is on my coffee table where I now have too many books about golf. Friends say, stop reading about golf it won’t help. But for me it does.

The books and concepts can’t fix me—that relay is an inside job—but reading builds me a cognitive life raft—the words and ideas and theory build me a frame that I can hang onto when I go down the rapids of personal change or my new white water of learning to play golf. Mind and Body. I need them both
