Good Guys Finish...

How did you complete that heading? The commonly said phrase is "Good guys finish last."

I hate that phrase!

I don't know who first said it or its background, but Phil proved it's just not true at The Open and since then. I've never seen a caddie cry because the pro he's looping for just shot the round of his life to win the coveted Claret Jug. Bones did that for Phil before the end of the final round.

I've also never seen a champion sign autographs before being awarded the trophy. Phil did that at The Open. The British fans didn't care he was an American. They treated him like he was one of their own because they appreciated his great play.

Finally I've never seen a champion bring his trophy to his club manufacturer's business to share in the victory. Phil did that with an impromptu visit to Callaway's headquarters so every employee could touch the Claret Jug.

I've been disappointed fan of Phil's because of some of his antics... like his drive on the final hole of  the infamous US Open to lose it. Or his attempt to get on in two at the 18th of Pebble that he wasn't able to pull off. But this victory at The Open was sweet for his fans and for all of golf.

He proved that saying wrong and showed instead that it should be "Good guys finish first!"

Here's to hoping you finish first in every way with your clients and prospects!

7 Lessons from the Fourth of July

This post won't be about business golf, but something much more important...

The birthday of our of our country is on Thursday. I unfortunately live in a city that celebrates WorldOne
Festival that day... whatever that is.

Horsesmouth sent a reprint of  its "7 Lessons from the Fourth." In case you didn't receive it or missed it, I wanted to make sure you see it.

Better yet, I suggest you read it, send it to your clients and prospects, and others that you know.

This is your link to the "7 Lessons from the Fourth":

I hope you can squeeze a round of golf in on the Fourth as we
celebrate this great country.
