Father asks son to be his caddy
Tuesday, July 9, 2013
There are a total of 156 golfers practicing for the Senior U.S. Open today. Kevin Coombs is thrilled to be one of them.
“As long as I walk away knowing I played great for me, it’s just going to add to how great this week is going to be,” he said.
The general manager of the Green Mountain golf course, in Camas, will be playing in the Senior U.S. Open Championship Thursday, at Omaha (Neb.) Country Club. Coombs asked his son, Connor, to caddy for him during the defining moment of his 42-year golf career.
“I am incredibly excited and nervous,” Kevin Coombs said. “It’s not like I practice or play a lot. I just happened to have a good round at the right time.”
