THE Legend of Bagger Vance. Anybody who hasn’t seen this film should see it. Today.
Bagger Vance is a caddy who helped a golfer, Randolph Junuh, rediscover how to play golf after Junuh had ‘lost his game’.
It is a film that is inspiring, endearing, thought-provoking, wonderful. It will make you laugh. It will make you cry.
It will make you want to play golf. And learn, and discover, and truly enjoy each step you take on the golf course.
This is Bagger’s philosophy.
Inside each and every one of us there’s one true authentic swing.
It’s ours and ours alone. It can’t be taught to you or learned, it’s something that has to be remembered.
Over time the world can rob us of that swing. It can get buried inside of us. Don’t worry about the ball and where it goes just swing the club, feel the weight.
That shot is going to choose you. There’s the perfect shot out there trying to find each and every one of us.
Let it choose us.
You can’t see that flag as a dragon you’ve got to slay.
So see the turning of earth come together. Everything that is becomes one, you have to seek that place with your soul. Don’t think about it, feel it. Feel it with your hands, don’t think about it. You, the ball and the flag. Play the game, the one that only you were meant to play from the moment you came in to this world.
It’s not a game you can win it’s a game you play. Now is the time.
