What is Rich doing?

Watch Rich Froning beat his score on 19.2 from 2016, but also finish first out of everyone in the Open! He's still fun to watch.


“When I write, I feel like an armless, legless man with a crayon in his mouth.” – Kurt Vonnegut

It can be easy to forget that even the greats are full of awkwardness and clumsiness.

The man quoted above is known to have changed the face of American literature.

But despite Kurt Vonnegut’s success, he didn’t start that way. It was full of fumbles, false starts, and embarrassing mistakes. Yet where others stopped, he kept writing. Forcing himself to move forward. He kept taking one more step, even when the process did not seem rewarding.

Awkward and clumsy is not just OK. It’s part of the way.
