Respectability takes many forms. When you grow up a certain way, it's expected that you'll travel a certain path: serve on boards, go to cocktail parties, attend important conferences, maybe even give a TED talk if you really have made it (after all, what could possibly be more important?) I grew up on that path, but deviated from it, first because of circumstances, then by choice.
Now that Adam Scott has been properly fitted for his Green Jacket, the eyes of the golfing world shift to Merion, site of this year's U.S. Open. Millions across the globe will watch on Father's Day as a new national champion is crowned. Except, that is, for the staff at Pinehurst. They're kind of busy.
