Birmingham (Ala.) Golfer Wins ‘First Off the Tee’ Drawing

Birmingham (Ala.) Golfer Wins ‘First Off the Tee’ Drawing 1CONGRATULATIONS TO SCOTT STONE, winner of the free drawing for First Off the Tee: Presidential Hackers, Duffers and Cheaters from Taft to Bush, a bestselling book on America’s golfing presidents by Don Van Natta Jr. Scott will receive an autographed copy of First Off the Tee (in hardcover), along with a personal note from the author.

(Note: Don’s next book, Wonder Girl, is a biography of Babe Didrikson Zaharias, a 20th-century phenom in three sports: golf, basketball and track and field.)

Meet the Winner

Scott is the CFO of a software company. He started a golf blog, Bushwood Country Club, last fall.

“I’ve been playing golf for about 15 years,” Scott wrote in an email.

“I started playing as a result of a mandatory corporate outing. My first tee shot went over the roof of a condo building and missed a lady walking her poodle by about three feet. I was immediately hooked on the game, and have played steadily since then. For most of the year, I get to play one to two times per week and am a 10 handicapper.”

Favorite golf memories:
Attending the 1999 Masters and 2008 Ryder Cup
Favorite golf courses: Shoal Creek Country Club (just down the street from my house) and the Lake Course at the Olympic Club
Favorite pro golfers: Hunter Mahan and Paula Creamer

Thanks to all who entered. There will be more free drawings in the near future, so keep coming back.
