post #73 of 73

A few years ago I was alone at a driving range and watching this tall older (70 ish) lanky looking fella consistently hit a 5 iron about 185 and thought to myself what does he do that he can hit the ball so long and well. I was interested like most players in the clubs he was using thinking I could use a set of those and after a while I walked over his way and watched - we struck up a short conversation. During this conversation, I asked him if he had a regular work-out or what was his preparation (he obviously played the game) and he said to me, "much of this game is in your head", work on that and everything else eventually falls into place with patience". Our talk ended there. A few minutes later after I began hitting balls again, the manager of the range came over and asked, "that guy you were talking to, he doesn't say much to anyone, do you know him"? My reply was "no, never seen him before". The manager said, "yeah, that was Sandy Koufax"....
