Interesting bit of Golf Trivia
What was the first Olympic Gold Medal won by an American woman?
The 1900 Olympics in Paris were so poorly organized that many contestants didn't even know they were participating in Olympic games. A major part of the problem was that other sporting events were held in connection with the Olympics. Also, the 1900 games were held over a period of six months, unlike other Olympics where the games occurred over a shorter period. Confusion reigned. American art student Margaret Abbott entered a nine-hole "International Ladies' Golf Tournament" on a lark. She won. Nothing she saw identified the event as an Olympic event. It wasn't until two decades after she died that historians identified her as the first female American "gold" medalist.

Great Advice from a Golf Legend
If you had to hit the green from 125 yards, what golf club would you use? There's a great story about Ben Hogan playing a practice round with a young pro who idolized him.

Hogan would hit a shot and the young pro would say, “Great shot, Mr. Hogan! What did you use there?” And of course Hogan walked on without answering. But the young pro persisted, because he wanted to know.

From the fairway on the ninth hole, or perhaps another hole close to the clubhouse, Hogan hit his ball to the green and the question came again.

With the young pro standing there, Hogan took all the balls he had out of his golf bag and proceeded to hit every one of them onto the green, using a different club for each shot. Legend has it that he used everything from a three wood to a putter.

Then he turned to the young pro and said, “It doesn’t matter what I used. Play your own game.” At which point he left his caddie, his bag, the young pro, and all those balls on the green and walked to the clubhouse.

So, is the wind blowing? Which way? Is it uphill or downhill? Is the ball in a divot, in the rough, in a perfect lie? Am I amped up from competition or feeling down because of illness? Do I want to carry it 125 or bounce it to 125? Do I need to hit it over a tree or under a tree or is the path clear?

One of the great things about golf is that the circumstances surrounding any shot can change from day to day and even hole to hole. Understanding, imagination and adaptability are very important. Simply pulling the same club at 125, whether that is an eight iron or a sand wedge or something in between, will work sometimes, but not every time.
