Magic John­son

Today's Golfer (UK) - - First Tee -

Af­ter watch­ing Dustin John­son win again at the Wgc-match­play last month, I was in­cred­i­bly im­pressed by his at­ti­tude. Although he can ap­pear dozy, his calm­ness un­der pres­sure is such a strength. When he hits a bad shot, gets a dodgy lie or has a rul­ing is­sue, he does not swear, throw clubs or smack the ground (un­like us am­a­teurs). He just gets on with it. We’re all guilty of mak­ing a mis­take and of­ten we will com­pound that er­ror with a bad tee shot on the next hole. Dustin acts as the role model you would come to ex­pect from a world No.1.
