Even a blind squirrel finds a nut

Who says that hole-in-one's are reserved for people who can actually see the ball? This blind guy, just sunk his first after 60 years of golf (unclear whether or not he has always been blind).

There are potential lessons to be learned:

If you're an optimist the lesson is: keep trying. In life, love, and business, you can only succeed when you actually try. This guy had the ultimate excuse, but it didn't stop him.

If you're a pessimist the lesson is: success is more luck than anything else. Which of course, is then used as an excuse not to try. Why work hard to achieve something that might accidentally happen by sheer luck anyway?

Disclaimer: even though I'm a raving optimist, my first reaction to this story can be found in the title of this post.
