Wow - you set yourself up for the emotional one-two punch with that combo.

Really wonderful story, ztexz.

Great story. All my kids are grown and due to a nasty divorce and my own mistakes, I missed out on a lot with my oldest son (30) and there was a loooong time when we didn't get along at all, it was golf that brought us back together. He and I play together most every weekend now and now my youngest son (21) has picked up the game and plays with us. Those hours on the course with my boys is the best part of my week and I wouldn't trade them for anything.

What a great story. I just happened to be looking into summer golf camps for my youngest (she's 9 now and just starting to get into golfing) so really appreciate you sharing this.

Funny how quick the time goes, I have 3 young kids and they're all pretty active in one thing or another. My wife and I spend half our lives running around to their various events and as crazy as it can be sometimes I dread the day when it all stops.

Great story @ztexz! Your dad was a good man.

Great story.  An inspiration as I have two little ones that I hope will grow up to be golfers.

Wow, there's something rolling down my cheek that hasn't happened in a long time. And I can safely say it's the first time it has happened reading a golf forum :)

Amazing stories.

Beautifully written. I'm a father of four (boys), so hearing stories like this really fuels my ambition to make the most of my time with them, especially during their childhood. My father was present growing up, but totally disengaged, so I really don't have any reference points on how to do this thing the "right way". Hearing from a son who lived it, really encourages me to continue, and even go harder in the direction I've been.

Thank you, Divot Dave.

And if I can just say: just by looking at the picture of you with your boys, I can tell you're doing it the right way.  Beautiful family!

Dave, you can see it in their eyes when you do something right. My Son is 40, and has 3 of his own kids, he works long hours, yet is always doing whats best for them. Heck, I can't even get him to play golf anymore..lol Dave, if you have any ?'s, feel free to PM me..keep up the good work.
