Dad loved telling a story of my first golf experience. I was given a plastic club as a 3 year old. As he told it I used to smack the plastic ball all over the house. This was the beginning of a life long love of the game of golf. I learned this from him. He was a member of Clinton Country Club and I would beg him to go play golf. He enjoyed it as much or more than me to see me grow as a golfer and a man. I learned a lot on the course and these are some of my best memories of my Dad. I tee it up in your honor and will continue to do that as long as I am able.
Your son Tom
