Golf landscape artist shares her views on the merging of passion and purpose in latest episode of 'Magnifying Excellence'
Longtime golf landscape artist Linda Hartough joins "Magnifying Excellence" host Brian Hurlburt to discuss how she followed her beliefs to establish a new genre of golf art. Now, her work is coveted by Jack and Barbara Nicklaus, golf architect Rees Jones and other notables in golf.
Since 1984, Hartaugh has captured some of the world's most beautiful golf courses on canvas through stunningly realistic paintings. Courses include Augusta National, Carnoustie, Pebble Beach and St. Andrews.
But her story also includes a deep dive into her business acumen and how that prevented her from being a "starving artist."
"I think of excellence as an individual's pursuit of developing their talent," Hartaugh said. "I think everyone has a talent, but some people never realize it, Usually, if a person has passion and they know that's their purpose, then they are going to develop that to excellence. It's just a natural progression."
