World Long Drive story from yesterday


Recommended Posts

Not sure how many of you saw this, but what a great story! Alexis Belton, a former student where I taught back in 2007, won the latest event, but not with her own clothes on her back, not with her own shoes, gloves, or even her DRIVER! Yep!

 

Her flights got messed-up and she had to catch a ride to the location, getting in at 4am, with nothing but the clothes on her back. The WLD Tour contestants all got together and scraped-up clothes and items for her to wear during the competition. When Belton got to the finals, Phyllis Meti, the other finalist, let Alexis borrow one of her Tour Edge EXS drivers to compete in the last stage. Alexis is not sponsored by Tour Edge.... Alexis ends-up BEATING Meti by TWO yards with Meti’s driver!!!! Holy cow! What a STORY!

 

Everyone came together, they took care of a fellow competitor, and she ended-up winning with someone else’s driver. Just awesome!!!!

Great story! Competing is one thing, but caring for others and helping them compete as well was great to see!

I saw Alexis in our airport last week. She’s such a nice girl! She’s also splitting time between the Symetra (?) Tour and the WLD. She has a busy schedule!!!!
