Tom Keegan: Kansas golfer ‘Mook’ always learning

Winning golfers never stop learning, forever turn bad experiences into growth opportunities. Watch Jordan Spieth next April at Augusta eat up No. 12, the hole that ate him up last month in the Masters. If it takes him more than one Masters to conquer that demon of a par 3, so be it. He’ll never stop embracing the challenge.

‘Mook’ just keeps getting better

For golfers, the lower they score, the more difficult it is to show significant improvement in their scores. Golfers get better, then worse, then better. The steps forward might outdo the regressions, but it’s never a steady forward march. Then again, never say never. By Tom Keegan
