To do things that other people might not be able to do and to help people enough.

Justin Thomas wins the PGA yesterday did you train it was really good how does that change his life. Why you know those are you kind of goal in the game of all the what you do in these major tournaments. Yeah that's a devils a big plus for him. There's no better feeling in the world he'd be too best of what they do. And he definitely be to best yesterday. The I I was watching thirty any ended John Daly and in it and McCord. And Trevino and Trevino was telling stories about like back in the day gambling and what the tour was like. Back in the day he predates you'll little bit don't have it. How has how's the tour changed between the late 70s80s. And the way it is now other no money the money is obvious. Well mommy and I'm gonna say it should not only on tour original sports. The kids are bigger faster stronger. The equipment to the golf ball room. Everything is better than one it was say when I grew up but. You know we say that the guys who uses the old wooden heads in the old a lot of golf balls that if you looked energy would cut. You know they were talented they learned how to play with what equipment today it's a power game. You know I I'm not sure the boys on the young guys today he could play the old stuff. As you know when you hit a ball flying Yule ball just continue to go away didn't straighten out like the new balls do today. Would you be if you're on the tour today and it would your game. I don't know I I really couldn't tell you why would be. You know I. I guess I was a long ball hitter when it came out via social along with phones out I'm rubber you're just more of those factional had a gift had two of the male doctors gave me enough. I took agreeing with the but to all the young boys are what do you think after 315320. In the error. Well in order for us but we're in our prime my prime do you want to read only argued it is a corporate to have returns got a good role. What. You know it is what it is it's fun to watch I mean. I watch a lot of gushed I get an opportunity go to range in just see how these kids hit the ball in its power that I mean it is strictly power. So when when I was a kid and I was grown up in New Albany and I'm belong to the country cub structural to call my dad he was the pro. And say pesos he's complied and so I Don not try to play behind here try to play where I could see what you're doing. And maybe learn something but the way you move the ball was so. A unique and I couldn't figure out how to do inning but hit it straight or offline. He he had just carve it in day where she'll learn that and how hilly indeed do that. Well just a lot of practice a lot of hours on the driving range. You know from serving in the morning until seven tonight I was on the golf course and I was hitting a lot of golf ball I was playing 1836 holes today. It just takes practice it's learning what you can do with your golf swing you know there is no such thing as a perfect gulch when there was a couple of look really nice but. You have to figure out. What you can do with that goal or vision with a golf ball to talk to you mean you want to bend you wanna go right to left and left right now. I was basically through my worms in my prime right to left golfer and I was the money shot I didn't play very many cuts. I played a really right to left because I had a faith and. And that your. And watch you play and in this I don't know if you remember but that's a whole New Albany is Canada's dogleg left through a couple of trees. And I and I always try to hit a four iron over the last tree and I watched you hit and he hit like a five iron in just split them. And then the thing like halfway to maybe a 175. Yards off the tee it just took a sharp left I don't wanna I'm not familiar with the scam huh. I guess outlets that was the right to left dolce that was my shot that was my dominant shot you're not learned to play and play that well. Nerves that. It did I know you had to get nervous but you never looked nervous your whistle and on the course even in majors your whistle and have a good time. Yeah he did it make it it never showed itself was and it was that part of the competitiveness are present just kind of the way you dealt with at. Are you don't look at what what are nerves and afraid to mess up on me actually a go back to the individual on. You're if you're and the faith in yourself and your abilities and you don't get nervous. You might get excited and it's not really nervous. You know the worst thing you can do is try to impede a crappy shot coming down when you're leading the golf tournament such I did didn't what 85 on the go down bagel. At our house a rock and a shackle him on the seventeenth hole. And I lost a one but you know what happens you just got to accept the fact that you wanna mash up we just hope it's not at DO.
