Sportsmanship And Honesty Still Exist

One of the things I like best about golf is the fact that it is largely a self-policing sport. Players are in charge of making sure they follow the rules and to a large degree, they do this quietly and without fanfare. Sometimes it makes headlines. It’s refreshing to see, not only in sport, but also in life, that honesty is still important to some people, important enough to give up a chance for a PGA tour card, the holy grail of a professional golfer’s life. How many of us, upon given the opportunity to make sure a mistake goes unnoticed that affects our livelihood, would choose to bring that mistake to light? Not many, I would hazard to guess.
