I had the pleasure of playing in a recent golf tournament at Sun n Lake’s Deer Run course to
benefit Sebring’s Children’s Museum. First, let me say I was astonished to be invited by Will
Swaine, who was our team sponsor because I’m no scratch golfer! I do enjoy the game and
work at improving my swing so I was honored to be invited.
Our team was made up of Sam Wilson, who is gifted with a radio announcer’s voice. Sam used
his talent to give our team play by play announcements, which kept us somewhat organized
and entertained at the same time. Todd Turner joined Sam as his partner. Todd is a proficient
long ball hitter and kept our team in close running but we didn’t make the money category. My
partner, Merrell Winter and I showed up in the same color shirt and pants, so it must have been
destined for us to ride in the same cart together. Merrell is new to golf and has only been
playing for three months. However, this strong young ex baseball player has already surpassed
me in the skill department. He certainly has a bright future in this game called golf!
It was an honor to be a part of this great team to help raise funds for our local Children’s
Museum. We are blessed to live in a great community that come together in support of others.
A big thanks to Will Swaine for sponsoring our team! Thank you to all who helped make this
event run smoothly.
