Third Heart’s The Charm

An amazing story: Eric Comption is on his third heart, and in the PGA Tour’s Q School

Add another comeback to Erik Compton’s remarkable story.

Five months after receiving his second heart transplant, Compton shot a 4-under 68 on Friday at Crandon Golf Club on Key Biscayne to advance to the second stage of the PGA Tour’s qualifying tournament.

Battling gusty winds and light rain, Compton overcame a seven-shot deficit to turn in the best score of the day. He finished tied with six others for 23rd place to take the final qualifying spot.

“I’m jacked up. I’m excited. I’m almost in disbelief,” Compton said. “Everybody counted me out, and I survived again.”
