My alma mater is often used for location shoots in movies and I once wrote a fairly in-depth article about film production in the Southeast, so I have a mild interest in historic or noteworthy buildings chosen by directors for their films. Over the weekend I watched two golf-related movies that happen to feature familiar Georgia sites: The Legend of Bagger Vance and Bobby Jones: Stroke of Genius. (I was also searching for a little Father's Day inspiration.)
Today I've got quite a few golf metaphors on my brain. I've been thinking about the difference between players who have an authentic passion for the game -- and those who appreciate the design of great courses -- versus those who participate to network. (My dad always says the game is really about challenging yourself, not competing with others.) Initially I was going to draw some comparisons between those concepts and designing a house. But now that feels exceedingly corny and much like a rehash of past posts. Instead I leave you with the chicest lockers I've ever seen: Amelia Handegan's design for Old Collier.
