Habit formation in golf [is] enhanced by solid teaching, devotion, commitment, and the encouragement of others. Make sure all these components are part of . . . your game of life. (Jim Sheard and Wally Armstrong, golf writers)

Even in the early months of winter, golf is often not far from the minds of those who can’t wait until spring. As these authors suggest, there is a lot about golf that could teach us something about life. Surely, sound teaching and commitment are necessary components both of the sport and of life. Forming strong habits of devotion will certainly help you live productively.

Commit yourself to instruction; listen carefully to words of knowledge. (Proverbs 23:12)
