Listening to The World on KUER this afternoon while on an errand, I heard a story about golf in South Africa. One interview with a young man struck me. He spoke of golf as a "gentleman's" game, filled with honor and sportsmanship. He also talked about stepping onto the course as "entering another universe" from that of his normal environment in a poverty stricken tenement.

The image of this young black African stepping from an underprivileged everyday to the lush greens of suburban privilege remains in my mind's eye. Interesting story.
