Golf’s Olympic Spirit- 10-12-13 Nephew Corey

 _Corey in M30 6-14-09As I head north to Georgia, the Peach State, I am thinking of another “Peach.” My nephew Corey, who passed last year at the age of 18, after a courageous 3-year battle with cancer. He was nicknamed “Peach” by his brothers and parents. Corey golfed, was proficient at the game, and his favorite golfer was Phil Mickelson. “Peach,” pioneered the way of immunotherapy treatment for his rare form of sarcoma. Even after his death, he is helping others that follow in his footsteps, take many more steps in life than he. My sister Mary and her family and friends are having a “Corey Walk” in Pennsylvania today. Corey will be there in spirit and somehow, I know, factors into the definition of the “Olympic Spirit for Golfers.” This picture of Corey was taken in the Infiniti M30 that I am driving to Rio de Janeiro on a “Journey to Olympic Golf.” “Peach,” feel free to come along for the ride! Uncle Andy
