You do not have to be a golf groupie to be part of the MD Anderson’s “A Conversation With A Living Legend” luncheon on Monday, November 3, at the Hilton Anatole. Sure, Austin-born, golf great Ben Crenshaw will be the headliner with his amazing story of both professional success on the greens (PGA wins including the memorable 1995 Masters victory, and Ryder Cup) in addition to having Graves’ disease. Thanks to his mentor the late Harvey Penick, Ben’s putting has become the stuff even the pros dream of.
And who will be interviewing this formidable legend? Irish-born, golf loving, never-shy David Feherty. Feherty himself played the professional golf circuit, but changed direction and is now a commentator on NBC’s Golf Channel. The exchange between Crenshaw and Feherty will be fascinating for even those who have never even played putt-putt golf.
Deborah Gunter is chairing the event that is being presented by Andrews Distributing Company and ATT.
BTW, please don’t wear your cleats to the luncheon.
