EDMOND, Oklahoma – Edmond Golfer Sam Humphreys says it was a freak accident on the golf course that led to his cancer discovery. The college senior says his 9-iron saved his life.
“I was hitting balls with my dad out on the range at National,” Sam said. “Basically, a club was on the ground and I stepped on it.”
Since a young age, Sam has always loved golf and he has the hardware to prove he’s defeated some tough courses, a case full of state rings. However, Sam and his dad, Sports Animal Radio host Craig Humphreys say they never saw coming the life changing events that unfolded this past summer.
“So, I backed the golf cart up about 10 feet and when I did, I laid the club up against the cart,” added Craig Humphreys, Sam’s dad. “The club fell off against the golf cart. So as young kids do, he doesn’t bend over to pick up the club. He just steps on the club face and when he did that, the grip end of the club comes up and hits him in a bad spot.”
