Great article in the upcoming issue of Golf Digest about Robert Garrigus and his long climb from drug addiction and rehab to a PGA Tour victory last year and a top three finish at the recent U.S. Open.

This from Garrigus' caddie after the Open: "He finished like a champion. I haven't been on the bag long, but I've known Robert for a couple of years, and you won't meet a nicer guy," (Brent) Henley said, his eyes red and his voice breaking. "He's been through a lot, but you saw today he's got tons of game and tons of heart."

  • Very good story, until now, I actually don't remember hearing of him. He has a very interesting story of life in the golf world. Its nice to see people turning their lives around after drugs and alcohol, and have a new outlook on life. Too bad it doesn't happen this way more often in todays world.

    Happy for the guy, look forward to seeing him play in the future.

  • Wow, this is a very motivation story. I've never heard of him until now. I'll be looking out for this article when I get my next issue Golf Digest (probably soon).

  • It's always good to hear stories about a guy like him. People go through tough times, and it's all about how you get yourself out of those times and turning your life around. I saw him playing at the U.S. Open at Congressional  and he looked like the happiest player there besides Rory. Even when he hit a bad shot, he was still smiling. The U.S. Open was the first place I had heard of him, and now after hearing this story, I am even happier for the guy. Good luck to him and his career.

  • Good wishes to him for a great future both personally and professionally.  

  • Yeah encouraging story wish him the best. And to all those still struggling there is hope!

  • Great Job Robert! We all love your 28 inch putter. Your an inspiration to all!
