高尔夫的真谛

Sean was just a little boy, about eight years old, suffering from cancer. When I first met him one summer day, he wore a Chicago Bulls cap and baggy shorts that needed a belt. He carried a bag stocked with four clubs and plenty of balls. He was a lot smaller than other kids his age. Still, he always seemed to be smiling whenever I would see him with his pals, trying to hit as far as they did.

肖恩只是个八岁左右的小男孩,身患癌症。我在一个夏日第一次遇到他时,他头戴一顶芝加哥公牛队的帽子,身穿一条必须要系皮带的宽松短裤,背着一个装着四根高尔夫球杆和很多高尔夫球的背包。他比同龄的孩子瘦小很多。尽管如此,每次我看到他和伙伴们在一起时,他似乎都在微笑,并尽力将球击得和他们一样远。

I played with Sean once in a while. He told me that he always had the best chance when playing a par-3 because he could usually make it to the green.

我偶尔也和肖恩一起打球。他告诉我,在打短洞球的时候,他总能取得最好的成绩,因为他总是能将球打到果岭上。

A year or so passed and I hadn't seen Sean around the course. I had heard that his cancer was getting the best of him. Still, his friends said he was going to try to get out and play a few times before fall.

大约一年的时间过去了,我在高尔夫球场上一直没看见肖恩,听说他的癌症恶化了。尽管如此,他的朋友们说,肖恩想在秋天到来之前尽力到户外打几次高尔夫球。

Sure enough, he was there the following week. My group went out just ahead of him. I noticed that one of his buddies was carrying Sean's bag. "Watch out!" I heard Sean tell his pals. "I feel kind of lucky today!"

果然,肖恩接下来那周就出现在了球场上。我们队刚好在他来之前到了球场。我注意到他的一个小伙伴替他拿着背包。“你可要留神!”我听到肖恩告诉他的小伙伴说,“我觉得今天运气不错!”

Despite his words, Sean was having an awful time trying to drive the ball. He and his friends arrived at the last par-3. His friends had all hit, and Sean was on the tee. He hit the ball as hard as his fragile body would allow. It flew up to the green and out of sight. One of his friends helped Sean walk up to the green. It was a tough walk because the green was higher than the tee. I could see Sean searching for his ball as he stopped to catch his breath.

尽管他嘴上这么说,但他用力击球的时候还是很艰难。他和他的朋友们走到最后一个短洞时,他的朋友们全都击完了球,肖恩站在了球座前。他尽自己那虚弱的身体所能使出的最大力量击出了一球。球飞向果岭,消失在视线里。他的一个朋友扶着他走向果岭。他走得非常艰难,因为果岭比发球处地势高。我能看到肖恩停下来喘气时在搜寻着他的球。

Sean's friends were looking for their balls behind the green. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw one of his friends pick up Sean's ball and drop it in the hole. Then he ran and pretended to look for his own ball. He caught my staring at him and winked .

肖恩的小伙伴们在果岭后面寻找着他们的球。透过眼角的余光, 我看见他的一个朋友捡起肖恩的球,将它扔进了球洞里,然后跑开了,装作找自己球的样子。看到我盯着他看,他朝我眨了眨眼。

When Sean finally got to the green, he was disappointed because he thought he hit over. Then he glanced in the hole. What a smile lit up his face! The boys looked at each other and said, "You can't tell me it's a hole-in- one!" "No way, Sean, that you put it in there!"

当肖恩终于来到果岭时,他以为自己把球打出了果岭,十分失望。然后,他瞥了一眼球洞,一个明亮的微笑立刻点亮了他的脸庞!男孩们互相对视了一下,说:“你可别告诉我,你一杆就打进去了!”“肖恩,你可不能把球放进洞里呀!”

No, really! Look! he said. They all acted surprised and as I watched, I thought Sean looked like the happiest guy I had ever seen. I never saw Sean or his friends after that day. But it was then that I learned just what golf should be.

“不,是真的!你们瞧!”肖恩说。于是,男孩们全都装出非常惊讶的样子。我看着他们的时候,我想肖恩是我见过的最快乐的小男孩。那天以后,我再也没有看到过肖恩和他的朋友们。但正是那时, 我懂得了高尔夫的真谛。

It's not about what score you get or how far you drive. It is about caring for the friends you play with and enjoying the time you have with them.

它不在于你得分多少或者你击球多远。高尔夫的真谛在于关心和你一起打球的朋友,并和他们一起度过快乐的时光。
