   Congratulations to Charl Schwartzel
   

There is a reason why we play the game, so true once again. At this age of golf we have dissected the golf swing so thoroughly. Golf clubs have been designed to hit the ball farther and straighter so much so it is a wonder we play the last round of a golf tournament. Technology and improvements in equipment have had an effect on every sport one way or another. Golf has seen incredible advances in equipment combines with the USGA’s inability to control the advancements and how it relates to the game it is no wonder we have 7600 yd golf courses. The great equalizer in the game of golf still resides in the players’ ability to control his mind and emotions while on the golf course.

Regardless of all these improvements the mind in golf is still a vast unknown universe. A player can be given best driver known to man, the best putter and the longest ball  however it still comes down to getting the ball in the hole. This years’ Masters champion certainly a long shot by some, a dark horse by others but for the mass viewing audience a relative unknown.  He did what he had to do. He kept his cool, he hit fairways and greens, made the putts and he finished his round.

Remember the essence of golf lies between the ears. You must first conquer this turf before you can conquer the golf course. The strategy hasn’t changed; get the ball around the golf course in the fewest number of strokes possible. Although watching Sunday’s telecast you might think it was about the intimidation of Tiger’s red shirt, his front night charge or the gallery’s thunderous roars. Yes, these distractions are all there however it doesn’t change the objective of the game; get the ball in the hole.

Charl Schwartzel was a master this weekend. He kept his cool, made his putts and executed. Being in the zone is not about wearing red on Sunday, hitting the ball forever and fist pumping in front of your fellow competitors. It is about executing shots to the best of your ability, maintaining composure, minimizing the highs and lows and as Chevy Chase once said “Be the Ball”.

Technology, Tiger’s record and media commentary lost on Sunday to a player that truly exemplified as to what playing the game is all about. Charl Schwartzel birdied the last four holes on his inward nine, never done before in the 75 year history of the Masters. He did not win Sunday by limping into the clubhouse as though he represented the last golfer standing. He played the back nine in a controlled comfortable poised manner. The 6 inches of Golf between the ears that Bobby Jones referred to as the toughest part of golf is what he masterfully played so well on Sunday.

Charl Schwartzel showed all of us that golf is not about buying the most expensive equipment, hitting the longest ball, or having a coach with you at sun up to sun down. It is about an individual playing the course to the best of their ability. Charl Schwartzel demonstrated to all golfers how this game is to be played. He mastered his mind on the golf course.  He is a true champion of the game. Congratulations to Charl Schwartzel 2011 Masters Champion.
