Kid named Hall: inspiration for all
Dennis Walters’ book IN MY DREAMS I WALK WITH YOU reveals what it is like to be a paraplegic who has made a career out of inspirational golf clinics. Jack Newton lost an eye and an arm to a propeller, yet continued to play and announce the game. Pat Browne won 20 consecutive US Blind Golf Association championships, 22 overall.
For the past four years, Kevin Hall has competed for Ohio State’s varsity squad. In 2004, he won the Big Ten individual championship by eleven strokes. This week he competes on the PGA Tour for the first time, in the US Bank Championship, fresh off graduating with a journalism degree.
Representing the finest opportunity for increased African-American presence on the PGA tour since the untimely death of Lewis Chitengwa, Kevin Hall will attract the usual bit of attention that something new usually brings. My gut feeling is that his gut is strong enough to make it on the tour. As Hagen said, stop to smell the roses along the way. He never said that you had to hear them bloom.
