I’m hoping to make the book club posts more lively and hopefully interactive. Plan on starting the book tonight.
Maybe we can share our lasting impressions of Payne and perhaps how they affect us. I remember the silky smooth swing and his story that the only time he used his first name was on the us open application. Of course there are the cut off sleeves making a vest (woke before his time), the epic fist pump, and the you’re going to be a father. At the time, it seemed inevitable that Phil would have at least one of not more US opens. It also seemed that a somewhat struggling Payne was about to go off on the rest of the tour.
The last Ryder cup podcast from the boys started with an almost eerie story from Payne about living in the moment. It’s been long enough that I don’t get choked up, but it still serves as a prescient reminder that we should all strive to enjoy each and every day.
Please fill in with commentary.
