Last issue we asked you about your first golf experience –
your golf origin story, just like a superhero! – and to share that memory with
us in a short survey. We enjoyed reading deeply moving stories about how golf
saved your life, on playing as children of immigrants in different parts of the
country before settling into Texas golf, as well as those of first golf memories
playing with relatives to celebrate their life.
Among the heartfelt reflections was a special entry from TGA
Member Todd Brown:
“My unique story is the first time I played golf with my
son. We were playing at a small municipal course in Andover, Mass., called
Rolling Green Golf Course. My son was going into first grade, so we went out to
get in 9 holes together. We teed it up on the first hole, a 150-yard par 3 and
I got my first and only ace! We stood on the tee box and watched it hop and
roll in. First time playing golf together, first hole, a few days before entering
first grade and an ACE! Unforgettable! We stepped up on the next hole, a short par
4 of about 300 yards. I rolled it up on the green, and my son said, ‘Tough
break.’ I guess he was expecting me to hole every shot. Again, unforgettable.”
Talk about expectations!
