It was a great display of sportsmanship: Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia each doing everything possible to win the Masters golf tournament last Sunday, but at the same time each cheering on the other as they both made many great shots. In the end, when Justin realized that he was in all probability going to lose, he stood back so that Sergio could walk up the 18th fairway onto the green enjoying the full adulation and appreciation of the crowd. It was a great lesson for everyone: sports is at its best when we do our best, when we test ourselves against a worthy opponent, and when we know that there is no shame or dishonor in being beaten by a worthy opponent. That they could each actually root for the other while doing everything possible to defeat him was a lesson for us all.
Sports is always about “Winning More Than The Game!”
