Scott Reitz - Gunfighting and Golf (Aug. 2009 SWAT)

First, I hate golf. Golf is a fine waste of a rifle range.

That said, I read Scott Reitz's article about Tiger Woods (I'm no Tiger Woods fan either) because I knew Reitz would somehow tie it into shooting and tie it in he did. The examples of mindset displayed by Woods on the golf course and LAPD's Officers Hall, Limas and Roberge on the streets are excellent examples of determination and willpower to win. This is the type of stuff that trainers should throw at their students. Please pass my appreciation onto Mr. Reitz for me.

Now, can Mr. Reitz now work on converting golf courses to rifle ranges?

Right there with ya on golf, Gary.

When Scott first submitted the article, reading the first paragraph Ithought he had gone off his nut. He did tie mindset into shooting very nicely though. I'll pass on your thoughts to him. As a former sniper, I have no doubt could tie golf and rifle shooting together.
