TOO MUCH WILL TO QUIT, ERIK COMPTON PLAYS ON
Fri, 30 Jul 2010 08:04 PM EDT

Sometimes life just hands you a bum rap. No one knows this better than Erik Compton, a man who has had two heart transplants, and is now on top of the world at the Greenbrier Classic. He has had a rough time, but the 30 year old is playing some excellent golf, the results were quite surprising.

With all the hype over Tiger Woods return to golf fading, there is a renewed focus on what is really going on. Erick Compton is a newsworthy story just due to the fact that he has overcome viral cardiomyopathy, a disease that trashes the heart and makes it not able to pump blood. He has received two heart transplants since being diagnosed at age 9, and is moving forward with his life, not letting anything slow him down.

On Thursday at the Greenbrier Classic, he managed an amazing feat. The 30-year-old double heart transplant recipient shot a 7-under 63, and is tied in the lead after the first round with rookie Matt Every in the inaugural tournament.

In a statement to the press he told reporters that he knows he is the underdog, not having the best record or the best health, but if he keeps staying positive, something good will happen before too long. With his luck, that may be a first placed finish, and a good laugh at fate. With his amazing performance, he is above George McNeill, Pat Perez and Jeff Overton, who opened with 64s.

Compton is the poster child for heart transplants, many who receive them feel that their active life is over, but that is just not the case. The tournament is receiving more media attention due to the fact that a double transplant recipient is placed amongst the top players. Be sure and take a page out of his book, and let nothing get you down. Come check out the rest of the tournament at www.scoresandodds.com, home of the best betting data on the internet.
