— “Not only was it awesome to see him out there, but to see him in contention through 27 holes was amazing,” Brock said. “The meds that you take make you shaky and you are still tired after laying in a hospital bed for so long, but he played through that. I’m sure this was a huge boost for him and he will be doing just fine next year.”

“I played well the first day,” Connor said. “I made putts on the first day, but then they were not falling. It’s good to be playing and good to be back.”

“He is eight weeks out of the hospital and had not done more then nine holes before this 36-hole event,” Smitty Marvin, who coached the golf team, said. “His golf game has been there and he proved it. It’s a dream come true to see them both out on the course healthy and in contention for the state team and individual title.”
