Da un’intervista di Golf Digest a Mickelson, pubblicata sul numero di giugno della rivista:
— quote —
GD: A few years ago, Mark O’Meara mentioned that his pal Tiger might retire sooner rather than later. Where do you think you’ll be in five years?
PM: I have no idea. Five years or 10 years, who knows? I have a lot of things going on, besides family, but it’s not like I have a master plan to leave competitive golf. I love it. I love the competition. I really enjoy it. But I also enjoy spending time with my family, and our oldest daughter, Amanda, is 9. That means she’s halfway out the door to college.

Ecco, credo che quel “that means she’s halfway out the door to college” debba far riflettere sul senso relativo di ciascuna nostra singola attività o passione in rapporto ad un quadro più generale della nostra vita. E il golf ci può aiutare molto in questo.
