The group came together from very different backgrounds and with very different goals and mindsets, but the sport of golf brought them all together. Dan McLaughlin decided to quit his job, create the “Dan Plan” and strive to become a professional golfer, while having exactly zero golfing experience. Tiffany Fitzgerald wanted to share her newfound love of the game with other women to try to make it as beloved and integral in their lives as it has become in hers…and created Black Girls Golf. Katie Horsford is also striving to become a pro, appreciating golf not only for the game itself, but for allowing her to become the outgoing and fun-loving person she is today. Tim Lang found golf when he needed it most and has used the sport to defeat his physical, as well as mental and emotional shortcomings to get back to being the confident and successful person her was before he lost his leg while defending our country in Iraq.
As part of their week, the foursome had the privilege of helping one of the many charities the Pro-Am benefits, the Veteran’s Transition Center of Monterey County. The mission of the Veterans Transition Center is to provide services for Monterey County’s homeless veterans and their families. By providing veterans with traditional housing, emergency services and case management programs, veterans will once again become employable, productive members of the community. The foursome was able to deliver some needed help to some deserving veterans and see all the good the game of golf can do.
Golf was something these 4 people used to transform their lives for the better and this past week’s Fan’s Eye View solidified their love for the game and confirmed that all they had been doing and working for was right for them. They learned a lot about the game and about life, and had a great time doing it. I’m pretty sure if they could do it all again, they would in a heartbeat…and so would I (ahem AT&T).
