Wow. Lara Patangan is a very gifted writer! Funny thing about this story is she interviewed me right after I got that ticket in OK. Trying to be safe, I pulled over near an entrance ramp and stopped to do the interview. Then when I started out my GPS thought I was already on this highway to nowhere I wanted to go so I followed it and lost another hour going 30 miles the wrong way. I thought about Gary Player and how legend has it he would get on the highway and follow the slowest car to develop patience. At first, I did not want to do an illegal U-Turn even with no one around fearing two tickets in one day. But then I just accepted that this “Journey to Olympic Golf” will lead me where I need to be led and it is really doing that! I hope you are having fun in life and make that First Tee donation choosing “Journey to Olympic Golf” from the drop down menu for the question “what inspired you to make a gift today?” (-:

    Andy,

    I am glad you liked the article. It was a fun one to write!

    Safe travels to you and Torch on your epic road trip!

    Lara

    • Thanks Lara, Torch and I should be back on the road south soon, thanks for your good wishes! Epic? Sounds like “Gone with the Wind” and I don’t want to be gone, just here, then there… onward to Rio!

      • Andy,
        I’m writing my column for the St. Augustine Record and hoping all is well on your Olympic quest! What’s the latest update? Also, I’m going to submit the photo of you and Calvin Peete holding the hickory golf club. So proud of what you’re doing!
        Blessings,
        Susan

  2. Susan- there was a good surge at the beginning and we are well on our way to reaching the $100,000 goal. Specifics will be shared at the 2014 PGA Show in Orlando in January! Thanks to you and all for supporting the “Journey To Olympic Golf!”
