“The most important shot in golf is the next one.” Ben Hogan
Red was at the Colonial Country Club last week and paid a visit to the Hogan Shrine. For golf, Red’s corollary is that it is never the one bad shot that hurts you – it is the two or three in a row – caused by the inability to forget the first bad one – that kills the round.
The above quote applies to so many facets of life. The last shot may have been into the water hazard and at that point all that matters is what you do next. And Red has hit lots of balls into the water both on and off the course.
