Golfers like Mike Sweeney, who will do almost anything to stay on the path to making a living on the PGA Tour, are the ones you want to cheer for.

This week, Golf Digest and many other news sites reported that Sweeney is from Connecticut, didn’t play golf in college, lived in his car for a few months, and now works in the cart barn at The Florida Club in Stuart, Florida.

He got into this week’s Korn Ferry Tour HomeTown Lenders Championship in an amazing way on Monday. He holed a bunker shot for eagle on the 18th hole to get a score of 64 and then won a playoff to get into the tournament. Sweeney said, “Golf makes me feel so many different things.” “You’ll have so many ups and downs, just try to ride the ups and stay positive during the downs.”

Sweeney had another “up” on Friday at The Ledges in Huntsville, Alabama. Because of fog and bad weather on Thursday, the HomeTown Lenders Championship was cut down to 54 holes. Sweeney’s first round began with a birdie on the 10th hole. When he got to the 230-yard, tough 13th hole, he pulled a 3-iron and made an ace.

Someone with a phone on the tee box caught it, which is lucky because there doesn’t seem to be anyone on the green. At least, they didn’t until Sweeney came to get his ball out of the cup. On the tape, we can hear someone with a heavy Southern accent say, “We missed it; we’ve got to go back and do it again!”

Good stuff, and Sweeney was tied for the lead at the time after only five holes with a score of three under. At the time this post was written, he had fallen back to earth on the rest of the front nine, with a double bogey at 17 and a bogey at 18. Those are the “downs,” but Sweeney already has a lot to say about this week’s “ups.”
