I was stumped with the prompt from Haiku Horizons this week, which was lead. I thought about a Haiku for it, but nothing came to mind until I sent out a tweet about Jason Day. In case you don’t know who he is. He is the latest Major winner on the PGA circuit. Not only did he get his first win yesterday (Sunday), but he also broke a record by going 20 under par. If you don’t know his incredible journey just follow the link below this article. It will inspire you.
When Jason Day fell flat on his back at the US Open in June, his head swimming with debilitating vertigo, the first person to help him to his feet was the most important man in his life.
Colin Swatton is much more than just a caddie to the Australian star who broke his major duck with victory at the US PGA Championship at Whistling Straits on Sunday.
Swatton’s support helped his ailing boss complete the US Open at Chambers Bay. Within two months Day fulfilled his golfing potential in brilliant style with a record-breaking major championship score of 20 under par.
To have risen from such a stricken position to the top of the golfing world, reflects the journey Day has taken in life with Swatton as mentor, coach and caddie.
It is little wonder that Day tearfully embraced Swatton immediately after tapping in the putt that gave him a three-shot victory over new world number one Jordan Spieth.
Jordan Spieth just won The Masters by destroying everyone around him. I honestly don’t watch a lot of golf – never played the game myself – but sometimes I like to watch it. I got hooked this weekend, and I had to Haiku about it today. Did anyone reading this watch The Masters this weekend? I would love to hear your thoughts.
“I’m calling about the treadmill.” He was nervous and he didn’t know why, but twenty bucks what a steal.
“The one I posted online.” Screech went the voice.
“That’s the one.”
“Do you have twenty dollars?”
“Is it in your hands?”
“Can it be in your hands?”
“Yes, I guess. I need to get my wallet.”
“Hold on.” Bob went down and got his wallet. He picked up the phone. “It’s in my hand.”
“Thank you for doing business with me. You will find your treadmill in the garage.”
Bob paused for a moment. “Wait, how do you know I have a garage?” The phone line went dead as the money evaporated from his hand. A second later Bob heard a large bang in the garage. Something had just on landed on the floor . . .
