Wife's Diary:


Tonight, I thought my husband was acting weird. We had made plans to meet at a nice restaurant for dinner. I was shopping with my friends all day long. So I thought he was upset at the fact that I was a bit late, but he made no comment on it. Conversation wasn't flowing, so I suggested that we go somewhere quiet so we could talk. He agreed, but he didn't say much.


I asked him what was wrong; He said, 'Nothing.' I asked him if it was my fault that he was upset? He said he wasn't upset, that it had nothing to do with me, and not to worry about it. On the way home, I told him that I loved him. He smiled slightly, and kept driving. I can't explain his behavior I don't know why he didn't say, 'I love you, too.' When we got home, I felt as if I had lost him completely, as if he wanted nothing to do with me anymore. He just sat there quietly, and watched TV. He continued to seem distant and absent. Finally, with silence all around us, I decided to go to bed. About 15 minutes later, he came to bed. But I still felt that he was distracted, and his thoughts were somewhere else. He fell asleep; I cried. I don't know what to do. I'm almost sure that his thoughts are with someone else. My life is a disaster.


Husband's Diary:


A four putt; who the hell four putts?

Moses, Jesus, & the Old Man

Mojžíš, Ježíš a starý pán spolu hrají v nebi golf. Mojžíš zahajuje hru. Usadí míček, míří k jamce za jezírkem a odpálí. Míček letí a padá do jezírka. Mojžíš však zvedá hůl, vody se rozestupují a míček se po vodním dně dokutálí na břeh, dva metry od jamky.

Ježíš nechce zůstat pozadu. Připraví míček a střílí stejným směrem. Ale i jeho míček se pomalu snáší na hladinu jezírka. Ježíš zvedá svou hůl a míček se po dopadu na vodní hladinu, navzdory přírodním zákonům, po hladíně dokutálí ke břehu. Zastaví se metr od jamky.

Na řadě je starý pán. Ledabyle ťukne do míčku a ten se odrazí doprostřed jezírka. Tam se zázračně odrazí a letí k nebi. Letadlo nad golfovým hřištěm ho odpinkne na dálnici. Míček se zařadí do levého pruhu a předjede tirák s návěsem. Odbočí zpět k hřišti, proletí branou, po cestičce se dokutálí k jamce a spadne přímo do ní.

Mojžíš se nakloní k Ježíšovi a zašeptá: „Já opravdu nerad hraju golf s tvým taťkou!"

The Key to Putting: Not Thinking


Dave Stockton suddenly seems to be the "it" instructor on the subject of putting. Current or recent students include Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson, Matt Kuchar, Adam Scott, Yani Tseng and Suzann Pettersen. But he's actually been teaching other pros for years—just more quietly.


"In those days, I just wanted to play. I didn't want people coming up all the time and asking me questions. So when I worked with someone, I'd tell them, 'You don't owe me anything, I just want you not to tell anybody that I helped you,' " he told me this week.


He advocates minimal attention to mechanics, no practice strokes and rolling the golf ball smoothly, like an artist applying paint to a canvas. His most successful early student was Annika Sörenstam. She credits Stockton for helping take her from a two-win 1999 LPGA season to 24 wins over the next three years.
