Most humbling moment (lately)?
My son Mike asked to borrow my golf clubs (which I hadn't used in over three years), I said yes but lectured him a good long time on how to take care of them. We went together a week later to practice and I managed to ground the club of my driver, snap off the head, and send it flying 50 yards down the fairway. My frustration quickly turned to laughter as he and I shared the moment.
