As I continue sharing the core values of golf, I thought it would be timely to share integrity. I was recently asked if I would be willing to teach a student at their home. I am equipped to teach amidst all of the health concerns and the student was clearly comfortable with the idea. Based on the pictures, they had a nice set up with a net and I definitely would appreciate the income.
I went back and forth for a week and ultimately I decided not to accept the offer. While the income would have been great, my services are not considered essential during these times and I am not comfortable violating the current guidelines.
The dictionary defines integrity as the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness. It is my hope that I will strive to make decisions that are just that.
From what I have been reading, it is clear that people are getting tired and anxious
to get back to normal lives. Let's respond with integrity so we can all
get back to living life in a way that does not endanger others.
