I'm glad you're back. Doyle and Grand Vol are too old to stay up past 8 anymore so they're probably crashed right now, but they post a lot during the day, Jake from Colorado is usually in here really late after his bar closes. He asked me about ylu the other day. I saw Sam in The RF football talk thread a couple of days ago, but he is too grown up now to play much.
Glad the main crew is back too!!! I like it!!

He started hauling clubs before he could walk. Was diagnosed with Leukemia at 3.5 years old. Took chemo everyday for 3.5 years. Played in the US Kids World Championships as a 12 year old. Won every Sneds Tour Event he played in this last year. Missed out on TofC because he wanted to play at Sewanee and Sweetens Cove. Shot 39 and 37 and missed out on a chance to play a par 34 golf course that would have punched his ticket. He still cannot play 'contact" sports due to some effects of chemo. Great kid. Don't push him at all. I promised my wife after he was born that he could do whatever he wanted to do and I would support to the best of my ability. So far....so good.
What a great story. I think the most fun (and pain) I have had through the years was watching my son play competitive golf. Enjoy it and best of luck to you and your son.

This is awesome.

My family and I just recently moved to Woodstock about 6 months ago from Knoxville. Are you affiliated with a church?
Our camp is not. We are open to poor/at risk kids from wherever they come. We are creating a high capacity/high adventure/high quality camp for children who would not normally get to go to any camp but can now go to an excellent one :).

Because they never answer... and then they come in like a cheer squad, people ask questions that would help solidify there believe and puff! They disappear...

Believe me I sincerely hope they are honest people but I am a person who has to see the proof myself to believe, just looking for Gruden info in a Gruden thread but we are talking Golf and Scotch?
Were you the guy at the LSU game chasing Currie?

Who are your sons favorite golfers...in order of course...
Let's see....We did a meet and greet with Harris English when he turned pro. He is partial. He loves DL III. His oncologist got Robin Love to get him a signed picture of Davis. He wanted to go to Sea Island when he played Jekyll 2 years ago. He is all about Speith, Fowler. He loves to watch short game stuff.....Lefty and Speith there. Funny thing is he loves watching the LPGA. He likes watching them get around a golf course. He is an old mind with golf.

Drive over to South Pittsburg, TN and play Sweetens Cove. Amazing 9 hole course and biggest greens in TN per sq footage. Sewanee’s university course is close by and great too.

Nothing touches the Honors. Place is special. The Farm is great too and many think it’s better than the Honors.

Is Gruden still coming? 🤞🏼
I went to high school in Sewanee...just saying the name brings back old memories of a cool place!!
