 Wait.... what? Did they have distance rocks back then?
 Well, the aerial skier was 5' 2"? To a naysayer like me, he didn't change my opinion at all, but I see why he acquired and maintains his following now. He's done lots of media appearances I'm guessing, but this is the first I'm seeing of him in an interview. He touched on little bits deliberate practice, could have done more? That's the novelty of his endeavor, no? But telly is a terrible format to go into that nuance. Not enough time. Viewers don't have the attention...
 If that happened, sounds like something Dan Hicks would repeat over and over and over again.
 If they were using wood woods and balata balls, than Bubba Watson & co better tag one 375+, I'm guessing?

It is overrated. OVER friggin' RATED. The fact that the media trot this out (absolute pitch) when talking about nature vs nurture, talent vs practice, makes the conversation seem more superficial.

Dan: Talent is ability to stay engaged for a long time. Considered architecture, music but chose golf.   I like this...

 I always drive slower on local country roads. And give cyclists, runners, plenty of passing room, I know what it's like as a cyclist to get passed at close proximity at high speeds. I think one of the reasons I'm a better driver is that I'm an active cyclist and runner and I know this POV well. I'm generalizing, but in the city where I ride, suburban drivers are the worst at dealing with cyclists because they're not used to seeing them. They expect you to stop on a dime -...
