DTH Sports at a Glance: Calm your mind

Sitting in silence is not my strong suit.

In sixth grade, I was sentenced to detention for convincing my classmates to burst into simultaneous song in the middle of lecture. While detained, I taped my mouth shut in rebellion and clicked my tongue to the sound of the second hand.

Two years later, I was sequestered in a forest and told to "search my soul" via meditation. So instead, I belted animal noises through the trees to see how long they would echo.

Leslie Cloots is different. Before becoming a star for the women's golf team, she was a Belgian prospect trying to find her way in a foreign land.

But after learning the art of meditation, she's reinvented herself — both as a player and as a person.
