It's snowing in London today so rather than writing about practice, I've listed a few golf balls (pearls) of wisdom to remind us why we enjoy the game so much even when we can't play a round because of the weather. 1. I don't derive satisfaction from trying to satisfy other people's expectations. I am not out to prove anything to you or to anybody else. I am out to prove it to me. David Duval 2. Golf is the only game that pits the player against an opponent, the weather, the minutest details of a large chunk of topography, and his own nervous system, all at the same time. Mike Seabrook 3. Confidence in golf means being able to concentrate on the problem at hand with no outside interference.
