Happy 4th of July to all Hooked on Golf Blog patrons. Happy birthday to this great country, the USA. We may not be perfect, but the United States of America is still the best country on this planet.
I found this ball yesterday in the rough left of the 12th hole! A great find and even my usual gamer brand…
Earlier this week I enjoyed playing a casual round of golf with my good friend and Iraq War vet Bryant. As you can see from the photo below Bryant was injured and now has a prosthetic leg. He has been featured in many local papers and articles for his willingness to test out new amazing leg technology. Unfortunately during our round he didn’t have his newest leg as it was broken. He was sporting the old one.
I have the game of golf to thank for meeting Bryant. We met at River Oaks in the men’s association. We’ve become good friends and played many rounds of golf together.
With the 4th of July coming up I can’t help thinking about Bryant and his family, as well as other vets who have sacrificed so much so I can have the freedom to play the game of golf. I’m thankful and I have great respect for guys like Bryant for putting themselves and their lives second to our country’s safety and security.
Hats off to Bryant and all other veterans this 4th of July weekend. Thank you for your service and your sacrifice. You have my gratitude.
Happy Birthday to the USA!
