Here's a great excerpt from an interview Will Smith did for the movie: 'The Legend of Bagger Vance' on success in life and golf. It's a humorous and inspiring explanation of how we can all strive for the moments of achievement in every area of our lives. It shows how anyone, young or old, talented or not, can have a chance of greatness. That's what the Legends Report is all about, inspiring ordinary people to achieve extraordinary results...
"What's great about golf is that it's the most difficult thing that you will ever do in your life. There's nothing you can do, there's no sport you can play, that is harder than golf.
At the same time, I could take any non-golfer to a golf course right now, and give them a hundred balls. And they could hit one ball that Tiger Woods can't beat. You could hit one shot that Tiger Woods could hit a thousand balls, and never beat it, you know?
And it's that shot that you chase for the rest of your life. That one shot, that one taste of greatness. That one taste of perfection and excellence. And there's no other sport that's like that. You will never dunk on Michael Jordan, period. Period. You're not gonna dunk on Mike. It's not happening.
Golf is the only sport where you can be the best in the world for one fleeting moment. You can hit the best shot. Like I made a hole in one about a year ago. There's no way to beat that. Tiger can't beat that shot. He could have a thousand balls, and he'll never beat that shot. So I was the best in the world for that one second."
Check out the video from 'The Legend of Bagger Vance' below. The movie is about a young upcoming player (Matt Damon) who no one thinks has a chance at winning against the true legends of the game. Yet through being mentored by an expert caddie (Will Smith), he begins to understand the fundamental principles and habits of the game and shows us that anyone can achieve greatly.
