A lot changed for my Dad after his 2012 car accident. But in some ways, even more changed for me.
He suffered a major concussion, which caused headaches and sapped his usually abundant energy. But despite the long road to recovery, his compassion, sense of humour, and love for his family and friends never wavered.
Dad just won’t quit, and if I’ve learned anything from him it’s that I have to keep going when the going gets tough. Winston Churchill was right!
I know Dad would be thrilled if all his coaching, caddying and tireless support helped me make it to the LPGA. My golf game has improved significantly over the last year — I shoot mid-70s to low 80s — and if I could only putt I could get on tour. But it’s a long process to get there.
That’s why I look to Dad for inspiration. He supports me in everything I do. He’s always there to give advice and lend a helping hand. He goes the extra mile for me, and comes out to all my golf events, even if it’s pouring rain. He has shown me what unconditional love means.
If he wasn’t in my life there would be something missing, and that’s why I am supporting thebutterflycares.org. A decade from now, I still want to be playing golf with my Dad. I want him to walk me down the aisle, and to caddy for me on tour. He always jokes that he’ll be on my bag until I win, then he’ll quit.
Help me help others affected by brain trauma. My goal is to raise funds and awareness for the Hive Charitable Foundation, through the game of golf. The Hive Charitable Foundation supports registered charitable organizations and foundations. 100% of profits go towards helping people affected by Brain Trauma, Return to Life!
I will be golfing for good to help this great movement. Please get involved some way, some how at thebutterflycares.org.
