Against All Odds

If you're looking for inspiration, look no further than Calvin Peete's story.

When he was knee high to a grasshopper he fell from a tree and broke his elbow. As a result he was never able to straighten his arm. As an additional set back, he didn't have the money for lessons so he had to teach himself how to play. I think we all know the perils of being left to ourselves to figure out something as complex as a golf swing, let alone do it well enough to play on a professional level.

If all that wasn't enough, he didn't decide to start playing until he was 23. That's not a mistake, I said twenty three.

Despite these handicaps, Peete went on to win 12 tournaments on the PGA Tour.

Nicely done Calvin, nicely done.
