Courage and Perseverance Award

This year marks the beginning of a new FCWT award called the “Courage and Perseverance Award”. This award is presented to a FCWT participant who digs deep down, and uses their inner strength to face adversity head-on.

There could not be a better initial recipient of this award than the young man who is with us tonight.

Last year when doctors diagnosed him with Undifferentiated Pelvic Sarcoma, he was told that he would lose part of his pancreas and need a hip replacement. He had to put his goal of obtaining a college golf scholarship aside as the doctors told him and his family that he would have 5% chance of living and would never play golf again.

In the last year he has had tumors removed from his pelvis and pancreas, been through 7 rounds of chemotherapy and had two major surgeries.

He has fought hard, beaten the odds and is in the process of a full recovery.

Love of Golf

The game of golf has given him hope and focus though this difficult time and has given him extra incentive to push forward and reach for his dreams.

In September, The Children’s Wish Foundation granted him his wish of playing the OLD COURSE at St. Andrews and he got the chance to live the dream of so many golfers around the world.

This weekend marks his return to the FCWT, and he is competing for the same things many of you are; recognition from college coaches, the desire to win and the love of golf.

He is an inspiration and amazing example of what can be accomplished even when faced with what may seem like insurmountable odds.

This year’s Courage and Perseverance Award recipient is Dustin Barr.
