I guess maybe that shouldn't be the headline, given that the call was about young Miami golfer Erik Compton (though it's still a great image):
Since the Mexico Open wasn’t on TV, DeLucca had to track Compton’s hole-by-hole progress on the Internet. When Compton reached 14-under on the eighth hole, DeLucca called Michael Hanzman, Compton’s longtime friend who has supported him financially and asked for nothing in return. Where was Hanzman? The only fitting place: a movie theater.Ok, this is actually a really nice story.
“I called him, and he was out in Colorado seeing a movie,” DeLucca said. “He answers, whispering, ‘Hi Charlie. What, Erik just tied for the lead? I can’t talk, but call and let me know how it’s going.’ When Erik finished at 17-under in the lead, I called him and he was out of the movie theater in the lobby on his cellphone watching the score.
Congrats to Michael for supporting this kid and helping make his dream come true.
