A New Yorker showed up at the Austin Country Club one day. He said he'd heard about this famous teacher, this Penick fellow.
I asked, "What can I do for you?"
"If you're such a great teacher, teach me how to get out of sand traps," the New Yorker said.
"Not so fast," I said. "I can teach you how to get out of sand traps. But I'm not going to do it until I teach you how to avoid getting into them in the first place."
