GOLF ART STORIES
The Swing through time
When an accident becomes the biggest story
Fifty-one years ago in 1971, Lu Liang-Huan made himself a part of golfing history. Not because he had won a major event (even though he was very close), but more because of his captivating and friendly smile and charming demeanor.
It was to be an accident close to the Tournament's end that would become the definitive moment of the whole event and leave us with an unforgettable drama to always associate itself with the event.
The Swing through time
Great teachers of the past Johnny Revolta
Not a long hitter of the golf ball Johnny Revolta made up for his lack of length by developing a deadly short game.
Although known for his teaching ability it was Johnny`s short game knowledge that brought the pupils of all calibers from afar. The great short game guru Paul Runyon proclaimed Johnny to be the best bunker player of all time.
GOLF MEETS ART
It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing - Either we start with our muscles relaxed, with gentle alertness at the start, which allows a collection of power from swinging arms against tightening body to reach the top, and then unhurriedly reverts the process, continuing the flow and circle past the ball until all energy dissipates into a final crash, with the actor remaining in the driving seat - or we don't.
The same goes for an artist. Either the brush lies submissively in the hand, making wonderful marks on the surface of the canvas or paper while building up a vibrant new visual story; or the brush fibers stutter and resist the uncertain strokes, creating an embarrassment instead of making a beautiful statement.
