When you grow up in Augusta, Georgia, golf is just a way of life.
The yearly Masters Tournament defines our city, and it’s also provided me with some of my favorite childhood memories.
When I watched legends like Tiger Woods walk around the course, I was hooked. I wanted to emulate the confidence, focus, and greatness that I saw there first-hand, and golf quickly became my sport of choice.
My dad is also a dedicated golfer, so he always jumped at the chance to take me and my two brothers to the golf course.
When my family received life-changing medical news, though, golf quickly became the last thing on our minds.
