STROKE OF LUCK SPURS ON BRENNAN

 This article was written by Sean Fairholm of Global Golf Post.

Golfers measure their success by mere inches and degrees, the most minute details
splitting hairs between perfection and disaster. In Tommy Brennan’s case, a minute
detail did more than alter his score one way or the other – it kept him alive.

In October 2014, Brennan and his youngest son, Cooper, were slated to fish at the
mouth of the Mississippi River, at a remote destination south of New Orleans. At the last moment, his son asked to postpone the adventure due to schoolwork.

That night, when he had planned on being on a boat in the middle of marshland, Brennan had a heart attack.

“There’s no medical care at the mouth of the Mississippi River,” Brennan said. “I was 10 minutes away from the outcome for my family being totally dierent.”

Instead of being on the river, he was at his Covington, La., home and was transported to the hospital in short order. An emergency procedure took 67 minutes, and he would go on to regain full health.
