This is by far one of my favorite stories about someone taking up golf. When Alice was in his mid 30’s he had a huge alcohol addiction problem. He would wake up in the morning and crack a beer. One morning he woke up and puked blood, following that he knew that if he continued to drink he would die. Alice quit drinking by playing two rounds of golf every single day with a golf instructor. He substituted a habit that was killing him with a habit that saved his life and made him a healthier person. Today Alice is one heck of a golfer with a handicap of 7.
