There were only two of us in the waiting area: me and Mr. Byron Nelson. I asked him what it took to be a pro. Without hesitation he said, Let's have a look at your grip. There were no clubs in the waiting area, but there was a thick phone line that dangled from one of the old style push-button phones with a bank of about 10 lines. He handed me the cord. I placed my hands on it and he made some adjustments: weakened my left and strengthened my right. It was an example of great honesty, integrity to the game, and his humility.
