Play golf or poker with someone and you'll get to see the real person. In both games, you're on your own; you have no one to blame for your setbacks or losses--just you. In a way, life is similar to golf and poker.

In golf, this is especially true because you police yourself. Character is defined as doing the right thing when no one's looking; golf will bring one's true character out every time, and sometimes when everyone's looking.

Not long ago, Tiger Woods played a round of golf with someone who showed his true character on the course. Why Tiger chose to tell this story is beyond me, but I'm glad he did because it allows us to see, again, what kind of person this is. And if that's not enough, the round of golf was played during a children's golf clinic.
