James Hahn….and Winning

This past weekend James Hahn won the Northern Trust Open.  His play was spectacular, but most inspiring is his  story and  willingness to not give up.

Before becoming a US PGA professional, James Hahn was playing in the Canadian PGA tour.  Down to his last $200 and not knowing how to pay his caddy, he was ready to throw in the hat, but fortunately he won $3000 and thus, continued to play.  Getting real serious, he hung in there and Voile, is now on his way to a stellar golf career.

Often I play with guys who are ready to throw in the towel after 9 holes.  They are good guys, but the reality is that we are amateurs and golf is hard.  For me, I have some really good days, then turn around and have some really bad days.

My goal, in the words of Sir Winston Churchill is to “never, ever  give up.” I am always striving to do my best in golf, that’s just the way I am. I consider myself a student of the game and so far, have never graduated!

SAC LJThe other day, my partner (Larry J) and I, came in 2nd in a local member/guest tournment.  We came from behind the 1st day and managed to pull off a 2nd place finish.  No, we did not win, but it was a great day to come from 5 down, to finish 2nd.

Have a great Day!  Go Play!
