Can you be good at golf especially starting later in life or at any point i suppose?
look at this man Walter Travis
Dream on eh.
Very cool. An excerpt from his bio:
"The second-place finish to Laurie Auchterlonie was the highest by an amateur in the Open, and rather than collect the $100 prize, Travis asked the USGA to reserve $75 for a trophy. The remaining $25 was given to his playing companion, Alex Smith, whom Travis thought displayed "thoroughly sportsmanlike spirit throughout.""
Is this possibly the earliest known record of gamesmanship? "Hey buddy you tried hard, I don't really need this prize pool. Take this cash and maybe invest it in your game."
But seriously that's a very cool thing he did both the instance above and his whole story.
