It Opens Up Over There

by Brian Kelly

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
There is a common understanding among golfers and those that follow the sport that it is a gentlemen's game. Long considered a game for elites, the concept of sportsmanship has been woven into the modern-day fabric of golf regardless of skill level, or continent upon which it is played. The keeping of one's own score, calling of penalties against one's self, and players applauding their opponent's successes are not found in any other competitive arena. While golf remains a gentlemen's game, it isn't played without a desire to win. So, it is not surprising that gamesmanship finds its way into the banter shared by players even during a friendly round. The subtleties of exchange are mastered over time to give the appearance of encouragement when in reality the intent is to reinforce negative thoughts in the mind of the competition. In "It Opens Up Over There," Tom and Tom take us on a journey that exposes these seemingly harmless words of support. When uttered at just the right moment, sportsmanship turns to gamesmanship and can ensure victory over a struggling player.
