When John Legend sings: “’Cause all of me, loves all of you; love your curves and all your edges; all your perfect imperfections,” golf is likely not the focus of his affection. Or his affliction.

When Leonard Woolsey recently penned: “Nothing really beats the excitement of the imperfect,” it might have been, in part, the product of the same unconscious motivation that drives all golfers into the otherwise intolerable heat of a scorching, record setting summer.

Each round of golf is 18 oportunities to succed or fail. Every hole played better than expected is a win. A round with more wins than defeats keeps us trying again. More defeats than wins has us taking lessons or buying new tools.

My old boss, Butch Harmon, said taking lessons is the only way to buy a better game.
