Golf Australia Express : GA Express 299
of have to ask ‘em, to hear things from the horse’s mouth. “When you were told the cancer had come back a third time, how did it feel?” I know. How did it feel? Please. Yeah, good. Felt terrific, thanks for asking. But tribute to the bloke, he didn’t miss a beat. He wasn’t taken aback. He knew people were curious. And he wanted to tell ‘em: This is how it felt... “Mate it’s a very daunting thing to hear,” he said. “I kind of knew in the back of my mind that I might be pushing shit up a pretty steep hill. “But it’s a fight I’ve had throughout my golf career. I won’t say it was an easy thing to sort of draw on, but I knew that I’d had that fight and that I wanted to get through to the other end.” “Is that how it feels, as if you’re in a fight?” I asked. “That you’re fighting for your life?” “Yeah, mate, it does,” he replied. “If you want to use a stupid little golf analogy, it’s literally ‘one shot at a time’. As cheesy as that sounds, for me it’s just one day at a time. “Things can obviously turn badly pretty quickly at the moment with me. But you just gotta take the good times and run with ‘em. “You also know you’re going to have days where you don’t feel like doing anything. And you’re going to have days where you feel like you can beat the world. “You just gotta suck it up and get on with life, and be the best you can be.” I kind of knew in the back of my mind that I might be pushing shit up a pretty steep hill.
