Most of us play golf and leave behind the problems and stress that affect our daily lives.  

Now take a look at Manuel De Los Santos, and watch him golf to forget his daily troubles, with the use of only one leg!  This is a truly inspirational story that can teach us all a lesson in humility and graciousness!

Thanks so much to golf.swingbyswing.com/ for this heart-warming story.

About once a year we feel the need to share this video. It’s a few years old but one of our favorites and very much worth a watch!

Manuel De Los Santos grew up playing baseball in the Dominican Republic. He was even on his way to turning professional, until a motorcycle accident caused him to lose his left leg. Following his accident he moved to France, and after watching the movie The Legend of Bagger Vance decided to take up golf. He fell in love with the sport and is now almost a scratch golfer.

Golf is a truly inspirational sport and when we see videos like this, it makes us proud to be golfers.

When an inventor or golf swing guru comes up with a new idea, they think, “I will tell everyone about my new idea, and they will all thank me for such a great invention/design/swing!”  

Unfortunately, not all ideas/inventions/swings work out!  But if we didn’t get these crazy ideas, we would never get the great ideas. So, thank you to all the inventors/people who design/swing gurus out there, and thank you to Golf Swing by Swing for bringing us such an entertaining article!

We all know the story of the emperor and his new clothes – it is about a king who is is foolish enough to think that the suit of clothes he is wearing are the best thing since sliced bread. Only the “tailor” who made them hadn’t actually given him any clothes at all and he was walking around in his birthday suit. The thing is that everybody was frightened to tell him, so they all went along the deal, telling him his new clothes were fabulous. Eventually, somebody had the courage to speak up.

There are times in real life when somebody or something is held up as the person or object that is going to change our lives. The truth can be very different, as we will see…

TASSELED GOLF SHOES

10 Overrated Ideas in the Golf Industry - #6 is my Favorite!

What on earth were we thinking about? Millions of golfers went out and bought them, trying to convince themselves that they looked good.

Let’s get something straight – they did not look good and they convinced all non-golfers that those of us who played the game had taken leave of our senses. And they were right!

THE CHIPPER

10 Overrated Ideas in the Golf Industry - #6 is my Favorite!

Come on, be honest – stick your hands up if you have ever had a chipper in your golf bag.

It was an abomination of a club.  The chipper had it’s uses,  by people that didn’t know any better. Watching people trying to get the ball over a bunker with a chipper was worth the price of the green fee on its own.

Watching them try to escape from a bunker had to be one of the funniest sights known to man.

THE PIZZA-SIZED GOLF HOLE

10 Overrated Ideas in the Golf Industry - #6 is my Favorite!

This is a new one on the market, with a design to attract new players. Now you can call me an old-fashioned traditionalist if you want, but isn’t the point of the game to get a small ball into a hole that is only slightly bigger?

You can quote me on this – Bobby Jones will be turning in his grave.

If you want a bigger hole, go and play basketball. If this catches on, I will run down the 18th fairway of the Old Course at St Andrews

THE BUBBLE SHAFT

10 Overrated Ideas in the Golf Industry - #6 is my Favorite!

TaylorMade told us that it was the future of golf shafts. For years we had been told all golf shafts had to taper, thick at the grip end, and growing thinner towards the hosel. And for years, it worked.

But suddenly TaylorMade came up with a graphite shaft fitted to drivers and fairway woods that featured, well, a bubble in the middle of the shaft. There appeared to be no logic to it, but millions of us went out and bought them. And then it disappeared from the market and we all wondered why we had bothered.
