Open Championship

Last evening, I was watching the 1970 Open Championship on YouTube. It was fun to watch the great golfers of yesteryear in their prime. What also struck me was how different the world was then. People were different then too. Things today that we take for granted that were unheard of and even unimaginable back then; a world that had not been besmirched by the attitude of almost anything goes. I thought of all the people who were around then that are no longer with us; family and friends and others too. After watching it, I felt somewhat melancholic about the whole thing. Of course, we always think life was simpler then, but of course it wasn’t. Everyone still had problems like we do today, just different problems. Yet, it was the nostalgic idea of a more innocent time that seemed so appealing.
