    A story I recall involving the great South African golfer of the 60’2 Gary Player who had a very good first round in a tournament. The equally great golf commentator of that era Henry Longhurst was leaving the course late that day and saw Player all alone on the practice fairway hitting golf balls.

    Longhurst alledgedly said to player – `there are some that say you are a lucky golfer Gary;

    Player replied – Henry I find the more I practice the luckier I get.

    With apologies if I have it a bit wrong.
