LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Erik Compton, the golfer with two heart transplants, has received another exemption into the Children’s Miracle Network Classic at Disney next week.
Compton also received an exemption last year and tied for 60th. He was allowed to ride in a cart, just five months after his second transplant. Tournament chairman Kevin Weickel says Compton will be walking this year.
Compton received the exemption Tuesday, a week after he was medalist by seven shots in the first stage of Q-school.
The tournament is Nov. 12-15, the final event on the PGA Tour schedule.
