Round Of A Lifetime is thrilled to announce that our latest recipient Edward Johnson will be playing his Round Of A Lifetime at world-famous Carnoustie Golf Links in Scotland on October 15th.
Ed is a 22-year-old college graduate from Woburn, Mass. Before birth he was diagnosed with Tetralogy of Fallot. He's had two open heart surgeries: The first at 3-months-old and the second at 13-years-old. Ed was on the golf team for 3 years in high school and was captain his senior year. He went to Curry College for lacrosse but left the team halfway through his sophomore year and started a golf club. He was the founder and president of the golf club at the school.
"I honestly couldn’t believe that I had been chosen out of all the people who have applied," he said. "It was such a shock and I still can’t believe we get to go. When Scotland was proposed as one of the choices, I knew that this was the place we had to go to truly have a Round of a Lifetime."
Ed (pictured left) will be playing with his father, his brother Henry (pictured right) and his best friend Jack. The foursome is planning on making the trip out to Scotland an extended golf experience as they will be playing a number of other courses out there.
"Every since I got picked I have just been so excited to go to Scotland and we all can’t wait to go," he said. "This whole process has been amazing and everyone that we have talked to at ROAL has been so helpful. I am so grateful for getting picked and I just can’t say thank you enough to everyone involved at ROAL."
