However You Slice It, An Ace

(AP)
I confess: I don't follow golf. The closest I've come to mastering the game is teeing up with a bright red ball on a green plastic carpet just off the boardwalk in Ocean City, Maryland.

But this morning a friend called to alert me to a remarkable golf story that unfolded over the weekend, the noble rise and fall of Sean O'Hair. While Phil Mickelson grabbed the glory, the 24-year-old O'Hair displayed something remarkable in the world of sports -- or the world at large -- guts and grace.

He may be poorer today than he had planned, but wealth isn't always measured in money.
