A little over four (4) years ago, I had major back surgery which involved a 12 hour surgery with 2 steel rods and screws from my tailbone to T-10 in my spine. I had many complications and infections, with a very long recovery period. I had hoped to play golf again since I love playing golf so much and had looked forward to playing when I retired.
Given all that I experienced and the setbacks, I thought golf would be out of the question. After 3 years, I began to tried to begin to test myself with an effort at golf. It was slow and difficult, with limited progress and success. In the 4th year after my surgery in May 2016, I participated in a best ball gif tournament at Hanging Rock Golf Course near Roanoke, VA. On the 15th hole from a distance of 125 yards, I struck a sweet swing with my 7 iron and to my wonderment and amazement, I scored the first hole-in-one of my life! Not only have I now been given a second chance to play golf, I had this wonderful golf gift of a hole-in-one! 👌👍⛳️
