More than a few wise men have said, "When you find the fun and enjoy the process rather than playing for the end result, that's when greatness happens."
Think about your favorite champions regardless of sport and you see teams having fun. I heard someone once say of Michael Jordan during a championship series, "He was having fun. He knew it and he knew you knew it."
Fun in sports is based in winning, success, confidence and trust.
I traveled to the Masters this past week and was able to see two guys having fun, Bubba Watson and Phil Mickelson. I followed Watson on Friday, not because I had a premonition that he would end up winning the tournament, but because he was playing with Rory McIlroy whom I wanted to watch.
