Pinehurst’s Maniac Hill practice range was full of golfers on Monday, enjoying their warmup in cool seasonal temperatures before they embarked on a memorable round at one of Pinehurst’s famed courses.
But in the middle of the range stood a man possessing dark sunglasses, striking white hair and a soft, soothing voice. In front of Joe McAuley were two of his grandsons, McAuley, 6, and Porter, 4.
And the three of of them were having the time of their lives.
Especially Grandpa, who gave perhaps the best piece of advice for everyone who introduces the game to kids. Check out the video’s final frame for that sage wisdom. We could all learn a thing or two from Joe and his grandsons.
