Tell me a story.
I played 16 years in minor and major league baseball as a pitcher (Career Info). I never dreamed that I could be as passionate about another sport but found it in the game of golf. There are not too many reasons I would want to get up at 5 o'clock in the morning with butterflies in my stomache, anticipating victory. I love golf more than golf loves me. Yet, I work very hard to continously improve my game. Trust me practice makes perfect.


Thanks!

Okay Daryl, I know you were a pitcher. But what is harder to do: hit a 95 mph fastball, or sink a 4 footer to win when the pressure is on?

@aaronw409, IMO, hitting a 95 mph fastball is by far more difficult than knocking down a 4-footer under pressure. Also, IMO, hitting a good breaking ball is more difficult than hitting the 95-mph fastball.

I'm interested to see what Daryl thinks.

I think I would agree with you greendevil, but Daryl has a good perspective.

@helfon- it really is. also- i'd have to argue hitting a 95 mph fastball is harder than a 4 footer, even with pressure. the fact is anyone COULD hit a 4 footer with practice- not everyone could hit a 95 mph fastball with any amount of training.

no comparison fastball is a lot harder. Now if you would have said to hook a ball around a tree out of the rough and land it on the green from 195 yds to within ten ft i would try and hit the fastball!
