Pappas brothers reunited at Nationwide Children's Hospital Invitational in Columbus
The Nationwide Tour’s Nationwide Children’s Hospital Invitational at Ohio State University’s newly renovated Scarlet Course (I’d like to see you cram more facts into a lead sentence than that) is in Columbus this week. It’s the tour’s first-ever invitational and one of my boys is playing.
I’ve known Craigen Pappas for 15 years, and the South African is playing on a sponsor’s exemption. His day job is head pro at the Country Club at Muirfield Village, but his moonlighting has a fun turn - he’s competing with two of his brothers, Brenden and Deane, both Nationwide Tour regulars.
Craigen, 47, was a standout at Ohio State in his collegiate days, and back then his nickname was Obi, which he tells me is short for obnoxious.
He shot an 81 on the first day of play, so he’s not likely to make the cut. But I can’t wait to ask him how much fun it was to finally compete with his brothers once again, just like the old days in sweet home Phalaborwa.
