The VGA is producing a documentary, Operation Double Eagle, to chronicle the incredible fight and passion of the amazing men and women, who are using golf to enrich their lives, and in many cases, heal from PTSD.
As if you couldn’t tell already, Christian can really, really play. He’s been playing golf since he got a plastic golf club at 18 months old, and broke his first window playing inside when he was about 2. Christian just turned 6 on Dec. 4, but last year played in 13 tournaments, winning three of them. He has a schedule of 24 tournaments in the Delaware and Pennsylvania area lined up for 2016.
Eric Bennett was again the runaway champion. Winning for the fourth straight year and for the fifth time overall, Bennett can now officially say he has the man for whom the tournament is named after in sight. Gaines, a Pinehurst Hall of Fame caddie, won the most Pinehurst caddie tournaments with seven titles.

Bennett is on his heels, though. He shot an even-par 72 on No. 8 in the first round to carry a one-shot lead over Joe Crnko into play on No. 2. Bennett, though was even better on Donald Ross’s famed layout, lapping the field with a 1-under 71 to win by 10 shots over the second-place Crnko. Kevin Krysty, with rounds of 75 and 79, was alone in third.
