I'm beginning to think golf is a universal force for good. It seems to be one of the few activities that has global participation; a sport in which every single participant has complete empathy with everyone else. There is no lack of understanding your fellow man or woman on the golf course. You recognise and most likely share their goals. You feel their pain and disappointment. You participate in their joy (unless you're on the wrong end of a matchplay thrashing).
If we had that kind of understanding and empathy across the world, it would surely have to be a better place.
This blog is unusually sober, but the political shenanigans on both sides of the Atlantic this year, coupled with the terrorist, economic and environmental threats we all face to one extent or another means it's something of a sober time.
On the day of the great Arnold Palmer's sad demise, but at the dawn of another exciting Ryder Cup, I guess I'm reminded of how competition doesn't have to mean we're at each other's throats all the time, that winning isn't everything and that you risk missing so much of what's good in life if you just focus on the end result.
