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!
