Golf – You Own The Best Swing – For You

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.

  • I guess this applies to all walks of life. We have it within us to succeed.
    That golf analogy is a great one. I have seen the film and didn’y even put the two and two together in terms of the Naked Leader. Now I see. It’s so interwoven with the ethos. It’s a reassuring story as I like golf and will try to apply it.

  • Great film, loved the work and it is true. So like the Naked Leader.
    I think we all have it in us to achieve and that film encapsulates this. Truly inspiring and a superb example to those who don’t think they can go and achieve. You can.

  • I have not seen the film but would like to give it a go. Anything that sparks my love of all things Naked Leader I’m ready to do.
    I have always maintained that we have it in us, whatever we wanted to do and although there are obstacles in life, there is mainly a choice as to what to do and that is what I try and get on with. The positive stuff.

  • For numerous individuals, they are unable to make adjustments in their golf swing due to some limiting elements such as a lack of flexibility or strength in key areas of the body. Therefore, it is a great idea for the golfer to get a complete assessment of their physical abilities. A professional like a physical therapist, personal trainer, chiropractor or a combination of all 3 can offer this complete assessment to the golfer if they’re knowledgeable of the mechanics of the golf swing.
