I just came in from spending a good chunk of the afternoon interviewing Ken Venturi and his lovely wife Kathleen.
WOW! My head is exploding with their incredible stories. There should SO be a movie made of this man's lifetime. Writing an article about his and their story will hardly do it justice.
With their superb recall of events, you don't have to ask alot of questions. Just ask anything and the stories start rolling off their lips, as they would if someone translated it to film.
Incredible successes, mixed with plently of life's obstacles and tragedies falling in the way, for them to overcome. It's not just a golf story, it's a true life story.
I'll attempt to share some of the story in the coming days, and hope to at least share some it well.
