Amateur

On my way back to SFO last night, I caught the latter half of “Bobby Jones Stroke of Genius”. Bobby Jones remained till today the greatest golf player. He remained an amateur player throughout his grand but short career(he retired at the tender age of 28, after winning the Grand Slam).

A quote by Bobby Jones in the movie:

¡°The word ‘Amateur’ comes from Latin root ¡®One who loves.¡¯ To play is to love. When one starts to play for money, it can¡¯t be called love anymore.¡±
