Player Battles Health Problems To Play Professional Golf

AP’s Golf writer Doug Ferguson has an inspiring article on professional golfer Todd Demsey, a Nationwide Tour player who played his way into the Wachovia via Monday qualifier.

That wouldn’t be such big news, except for the fact that he recently underwent surgery to remove a golf ball sized tumor from his brain. And just a week before playing the Wachovia, he had learned that the tumor had returned.

Demsey has a remarkable attitude:

“It puts things in perspective,” Demsey said. “I used to live and die on every shot. It’s still my job. It’s what I love to do. It’s not quite as important to me as it was before all this. But I feel real lucky to be able to play golf for a living, especially after back problems and a brain tumor. I have nothing to complain about.”

It’s worth a read.
