Fathers Day Memory
25 Father’s Days ago, my father shook me out of bed and asked me to go play golf at Harding Park which is located just across the street from the Olympic Club which back in 1987 was hosting the US Open. 25 years later I will be thinking of my dad and that awesome morning as the US Open is played again at the Olympic Club. You see, on that Father’s Day 25 years ago, my dad hit a hole-in-one on the 11th hole at Harding Park. The smile and embarrassed laugh my dad gave will never be forgotten.
All I could say was “Happy Father’s Day”. His comment, ” Thanks, for the great day”. I like to think it wasn’t about the hole in one , but sharing it with friends and family. Golf will always be a Father’s Day sport as long as the US Open takes place over Father’s Day weekend. The US Open, golf, and that day 25 years ago will always make it more than a Hallmark Holiday in my book.
Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there.
