If you’re a golf fan like I am you may have see this story. But even if you’re not, it’s a great one.
Pro golfer Scottie Scheffler won The Players Championship on Sunday. As he walked off the 18th green most of his family were there to congratulate him. Including his 88-year-old grandmother, Mary. She lives about 20 minutes from the course just outside of Jacksonville, FL. She walked all 72 holes with Scottie from Thursday to Sunday of the 4 day tournament. Every single hole. 16 miles total! What a trooper. And it all paid off as she was about to watch her grandson win the whole thing.
When Scottie was asked at his post round press conference how he was going to celebrate he said “I dunno maybe grandma’s got some food at home, I know she has some good dessert”
Congrats to Scottie on the win. And to Mary on her 16 mile victory walk!
