Dear friends at Onward Reserve:
Like faith and family, in hard times we find comfort in our friends, in poems and songs, in comforting words. Retirement has given me the chance to write and enjoy favorite passages in books.
Grantland Rice, the greatest sportswriter in the twenties and thirties, wrote this about the swing of Bobby Jones:
One might as well try to describe
the smoothness of the wind as to
paint a clear picture of his complete swing.
His writing is not appreciated as much as his golf, but it was as smooth as his swing. The short passage below is from his speech to the people of St. Andrews in 1958. He was 56.
Thanks for asking me to contribute.
Thank you, Linton. We're looking forward to more contributions from you!
