G.O.L.F. stands for Game of Life First.

Like life, golf is a game where you get some good breaks and some bad breaks you don't deserve, and some good breaks and bad breaks you do deserve.

In golf you are reacting to your own performance. Sometimes you are playing better than you expect and dealing with success; sometimes you are playing worse than you expect and dealing with failure.

Golf brings out the best and worst in people. If you cheat or blow up when you have a bad break, that same behavior will show up in other parts of your life. If you maintain a a positive attitude when things go sour, that will carry over into others things also.

What better training ground is there for learning to accept the bitter with the sweet, than the golf course?
