Dean Snell: Golf’s Matador

Hemingway called it duende. It’s a Spanish word that doesn’t translate well into English, but essentially duende is a mixture of flair, bravado, and soul that turns doing your job into a passion play. Hemingway was talking about bullfighters, but if you look hard enough, you can find duende in any profession, including golf, where there's often no shortage of "bull" to fight.
