Set aside the 17 minutes it will take to watch this!

Moe Norman - fiesty, awkward, but awesome!!

It is a paradoxical but profoundly true and important principle of life that the most likely way to reach a goal is to be aiming not at that goal itself but at some more ambitious goal beyond it. - Arnold Toynbee

I like the Moe Norman story - really fascinating. People should know more about him to be honest. Some of the stories are literally unbelievable. Aiming for a cart path bridge to clear a hazard - and making it - for example.

You can tell he's an "uncomfortable" character but a lot of learnin to be had from one of the most unique golfers ever. Apparently Titleist gave him a lifetime retainer just to be himself.

Read his autobiography a great read, he had a heart attack and was rushed to hospital, a doctor asked him if he knew where he was, he answered "The 12th hole" or similar, this was thought odd, till someone remembered the hospital was built on the site of a golf course, and Moe was correct.An amazing man with an amazing talent.
