What Fathers & Children Are All About


Golf provides a compelling bond between fathers and children. Unlike most other sports, it is a game both can share throughout their lives. No matter what their relative abilities or ages, they can be equals on the golf course. Whether as partners or competitors, counselors or students, they are necessarily companions whose attributes and deficiencies become increasingly familiar and, at once, both frustrating and endearing.

Being a good golfer is like being a good father. It takes commitment, effort, practice, patience and a subjective perspective on success and failure.

The essence of the game of golf is based on its history and traditions. Personal qualities of discipline and integrity are principles for which a father must stand as an ambassador for past generations. His legacy to the game is reflected in the values that he successfully hands down to his children. – Alastair J. Johnston
