Golf: “Quiet” – Part 1 …Par 4

     If you have ever watched a professional golf tournament you have no doubt seen a person standing off to the side of each tee holding one or two “Quiet” signs.  As each player steps into position to hit their tee shot, the Marshall raises those signs high signaling a call for silence in the tee area.

Why is that?

The Marshall is simply requesting the courtesy of silence from the audience to allow the player a moment to focus on their pre-shot routine, desired swing mechanics and the target.  While this may seem a nominal courtesy and perhaps insignificant to the observer, it is of tremendous importance to the player as thousands of dollars ride on each shot.


If it is so important for a professional golfer to take a moment or two before each shot to “get his mind straight” in a game, doesn’t it seem appropriate for us as individuals to observe a similar practice in the conduct of our lives where we are the professionals?

How important is a little quiet time before each shot in your life?

    Thanks for the little reminder. Sounds like I have to take a minute to go on a prayer walk.
