VICTORY AT LAST IS MINE!!!!!



After 7 long and disappointing years of not winning my own golf tournament, I finally get to claim my rightful position atop the leader board. We went 20 under and only won by one shot. That is Class of 1991 ECU Econ grad and Wall of Fame member Francis Vaughn to my left and my nephew Ricky Parker to my right. We made no eagles on any of the par fives, but Ricky pitched in from 105 yards for eagle on #9 and then again from 25 yards on #18. But it took a hole-in-one to win it! Our playing partner and Class of 1992 ECU Econ grad Tee Davies made the ace on #17 to clinch it. To think it took a hole-in-one for me to finally break through is scary! But now I have the ring forever!

It was your dream. I am happy for you, but don't misplace that trophy. I'll be back next year.

But all joking aside, thanks for your effort in helping those students in need. You're a good man.

Heck ... anyone can win with three professional golfers on the team! But you have always said "Whatever it takes within the rules!" I am sure they used your driving ever hole ... cart driving that is! Can you defend is the question?
