Sun gonna be there in the morning, over there in the afternoon. Funny thing is, the blades of grass are gonna follow the sun. The grain is gonna shift. That same putt is gonna go one way in the morning, the other in the afternoon. One way in the morning, the other in the afternoon. A golf course put folk through quite a punishment. It lives and breathes just like us.
What is authentic swing? Inside each and every one of us is one true, authentic swing. Something we were born with, something that’s ours and ours alone, something that can’t be taught to you or learned, something that gets to be remembered. Over time, the world can rob us of that swing. It gets buried inside us under all our wouldas and couldas and shouldas. Some folk even forget what the swing is like. Some folk even forget what the swing was like.
Don’t worry about hitting the ball the way it’s gonna go. Just swing the club, feel the club. Now close your eyes. You can’t make that ball going that hole. You got to let it. I want you to feel that club, feel the weight of the club. Settle in deeper, and then drop the ball soft as butter. Listen to the sounds of the night. You just keep swinging that club until you feel the breeze coming off the sea. Inside every one of us is one true, authentic swing, you just keep swinging that club until you’re part of the whole thing, something you were born with. That’s a good thing. You just keep swinging that club until you’re part of the whole thing.
What’s the field? Look at his practice swing, almost like he’s searching for something. Then he finds it. Watch how he settles himself right into the middle of it. Feel that focus. He got a lot of shots he could choose from – duffs, tops and skulls. But there’s only one shot that’s in perfect harmony with the field. One shot that’s his – authentic shot. And that shot is gonna choose him. There’s a perfect shot out there trying to find each and every one of us. All we gotta do is get ourselves out of its way. Let it choose us. Mm, look at him. He’s in the field. Can’t see that flag as some dragon you got to slay? You got to look with soft eyes. See the place where the tides and seasons and the turning of the earth all come together where everything that is becomes one. You got to seek that place with your soul. Seek it with your hands. Don’t think about it. Feel it. Your hands are wiser than your head ever gonna be. I can’t take it there. Just hope I can help you find a way. Just you, that ball, that flag and all you are. Seek it with your hands. Don’t think about it. Feel it. You are looking at it – your authentic swing. That ball, that flag and all that you are.
How drunk is drunk enough? The answer is that it’s all a matter of brain cells. Every drink of liquor you take kills a thousand brain cells. But that doesn’t much matter, because we got billions more. And first sadness cells die, so you smile real big. And then the quiet cells go, so you just say everything real loud for no reason at all. But that’s okay, because the stupid cells go next, so everything you say is real smart. And finally, come the memory cells. These are tough sons of bitches to kill. 多醉是足够醉？ 答案和脑细胞有关。 每喝一次就杀死上千个脑细胞。但是没什么关系，因为我们有十几亿个这样的脑细胞。首先，悲伤细胞被杀死了，所以你就狂笑不已。接着，安静细胞也亡了，所以你会无缘无故地大声说话。但是没关系，因为接下来愚蠢细胞也死了，那是你将变得十分聪明。最后是记忆细胞，这些细胞真他妈的难杀死。
