CBS Interviewer Gets It Right
What a fantastic question by the CBS interviewer. He asked Jordan, “What will be your takeaway? Will you have more disappointment in losing the lead, or more pride from having played well once again?” What an excellent question!
Mr. Masters, Jordan Spieth, had another fantastic performance at Augusta. He’s never finished out of — are you sitting down? — the top two, Danny Willett showed great skill in securing the green jacket on this beautiful Sunday. It might have been a blessing in disguise for Spieth fans, though, as Jordan was able to show kids — and grownups! — all over the world how to act with grace after a major disappointment. Most of us will face far more disappointments than successes; we can all take heart from Jordan’s reaction to this misfortune of his on life’s highway.
Now would be a good time to remind people of what Ole Lanny said a while back. Let’s get in our Wayback Machine and travel to January 6, 2016:
By the way, for all the media attention given to Thomas and Koepka, I think Kaufman and Grillo will outplay them. I’ll say that for this year, but I think over the next three years for sure.
Score Standing Smylie Kaufman -2 2 Emiliano Grillo +4 T-16 Brooks Koepka +5 T-23 Justin Thomas +11 T-50
Lanny knows golf!
