Friday Fun on FARMStrong

Back in college at the University of Arkansas, the famed Harvard of the Ozarks, I played a lot of golf. One of my fraternity brothers formerly played on the Razorback Golf Team. His claim to fame was introducing a certain now famous and infamous golfer to the golf coach at the time. As the story goes, Joe took the coach to small town somewhere in the boothill of Missouri to show him a ball striker the likes of whom the golfing world had never seen. The rest, as they say is history. I enjoyed playing (tagging along would be more apt) a few rounds with this now world-famous golfer. However, at the time, I had no idea of the rise to fame that would later ensue in his career. I will forever remember waking up one Saturday morning (uh afternoon) at a friend's house in Texarkana, turning on the television and finding that this guy was leading the PGA Championship at the challenging Crooked Stick golf course in Carmel, Indiana. After all, he hadn't even made the PGA tour yet. He got in on a late qualifying round for the 4th major, drove all night on Wednesday, and teed off early on Thursday morning. He proceeded to lead the tournament from wire to wire, winning the coveted major tourney. He has gone on to become one of, if not the most popular player on the PGA Tour.

Jeremy Summers emailed me this link yesterday which says it all. You must watch the short video now. Following a short commercial the clip will appear. Enjoy!
