Thumbs up What a win!!

Nate Lashley's road to his first win is a true story, that if anyone made it up for a book...would sound too hokey and unbelievable.

For those that don't know his story...here it is.

Fairy Tale Win (poke here)

Fighting through adversity

While a junior at Arizona, his parents and girlfriend were killed in a plane crash on their way home from watching him compete at the 2004 NCAA West Regional.

"It was just shock," Lashley said in a 2017 ESPN story. "Shock and disbelief. It was a really tough time, especially that week with the funerals and the memorial service. I was just kind of out of it."
And to top it all off, he wasn't even in the tournament this week until someone dropped out and allowed him, as the first alternate...to get into the field.

Standing up for the underdog and against bullies...every chance I get.

For each of us, life is a journey. Where has your life taken you? Your entire life leads to the next step, the chance to define yourself by where you're headed, instead of where you stand. Today is the day you introduce yourself to your destiny.

There are so many stories out there, that never get told........glad to hear a story.

I was shocked he said during his interview on the 18th green, (more or less), "I'm glad my family flew out to be here."

OMG..............it was gut wrenching.

Glad he got the win.................and never let off the gas.

Hope he has fun tonight.
