Please join us in honoring Mike Shane at the 2021 Mike Shane Memorial Golf Tournament! Mike loved golf, so the best way we know to pay tribute to his memory is through golfing.

The tournament will support the foundation in Mike's name. The Mike Shane Memorial Fund, Inc, is a 501c3 charitable organization that funds life-saving second opinions for patients diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma. Learn more about the foundation here: mikeshanefund.org.

 

 

"People that don't play golf, don't generally have a great understanding as to why enthusiasts find the game so addictive. Recently, a good friend asked if I ever improve. I laughed and said 'hell no'. In my mind, I get better, there are moments where I play fairly well, but over the years, my scores haven't improved. The same holds true for most of the guys I play with.

So what makes me excited to go out and play, especially when temperatures are in the mid 90's? I love the challenge. I love the competition and I love the camaraderie. Those are the surface factors that drive my passion for the game. It goes much deeper than that though. My love for the game is rooted deep into all the metaphors that exist between golf, business, and life.

My son can tell you the countless number of times that I used golf as a teaching moment. In recent months, he's turned the table on me and thrown some of those lessons back at me. In golf, perfection isn't achievable. Golf shots rarely go exactly where you expect them to go, but even after the worst of shots, you have to move on to the next shot. You may not care for the position that the previous shot placed you in, but you can't look back, you have to move forward. Each shot creates a different situation and each situation creates a new and unique pathway towards the hole. You have to make well thought out decisions when you consider each shot and accept the outcomes. You catch good breaks and bad. If you dwell on the bad, you can make a bad situation worst. You are ultimately accountable for what happens on the course.

I always get a kick out of hearing people blame their bad shots on the course, the condition of the bunker, how thick the rough is and ignore the fact that they just made a bad swing. Of course, often the course makes the shot more difficult, but few are willing to take accountability. I make a lot of bad shots, and while I get frustrated, generally I laugh at how flawed my shot was. After all, it's a golf shot - that's all it is - just a shot in a game.

If I've learned anything since my diagnosis, I've learned that the wonder of golf is being able to play! The South Course, an extremely demanding par 71 layout covering 7,055 yards of wooded, rolling terrain, has long been considered a championship-caliber golf course. The South Course has been a host site for many state, regional, and national golf championships in its 60-year history."
