Heartwarming Story

Saw this story on ESPN last night. It's about a 13 year old girl named Dakoda Dowd who's mother has been diagnosed with cancer twice in the past few years, and this time it's terminal. The girl is an avid golfer with dreams of someday playing professionally, and it has been her mother's dream to see her daughter play on the LPGA tour. The club sponsoring the Ginn Clubs and Resorts Open gave her an exemption to play in the tournament this weekend so her Mom could see her play.

On Tuesday she played a practice round with two the LPGA's best, Annika Sorenstam and Paula Creamer, to get her ready for the event.

Amazing story.

Incidentally, she's holding her own with the big dogs--shooting one over par on her first round. Follow her score here.
