Football As Art, Golf As Our Masterpiece

September 24, 2012

“We see the game as art as much as sport,” said Steve Sabol when his father Ed was inducted into the Hall of Fame. Steve recently died at age 69. Steve and his father, of course, were talking about football; they revolutionized NFL football with their dramatic NFL documentaries.

Those of us that love golf can also see golf as an art form, in addition to many other things. Seeing the flow of the body in a golf swing; hitting a pure shot directly on the clubhead face, seeing the ball fly toward the flag and landing close to the hole; “knocking in” a putt before you putt the ball because you know the ball is going to go in the hole once you putt it and IT DOES go in — all part of the mystical art form of the game we love.
