You Gotta Have Heart

Which clearly Erik Compton has plenty of coming from two back and outlasting weather delays and some fiesty competition to win the Nationwide Tour Mexican Open with eight birdies on the final day. Erik is a two-time heart transplant recipient so he has overcome adversities much bigger than the yips or a bad marriage. With this win and the $126,000 first prize, he is second on the earnings list and a shoe-in for earning his PGA Tour Card at the end of the year as one of the top 25 on the Nationwide Tour.

Don’t you want to give him a big virtual hug-this is a comeback story that I am sure Kevin Costner will consider making into a movie.
