The Comeback Continues: Golfer Back After Brutal Attack, Brain Injury

(Santa Barbara News-Press) – As a golfer at San Marcos High, Thayer White was one of the best in the Channel League. He was the backbone of a Royals’ team for four years that enjoyed great success in and out of league play. 

Almost 10 years later, Mr. White is a scratch golfer today. He will take his game and competitive spirit into this weekend’s Santa Barbara City Golf Championship at Muni. 

“I’m very excited. I really enjoy competing, and living back in Santa Barbara now, it’s really fun seeing people who I know in the golf community,” he said.

Mr. White will help make up one of the tournament’s largest championship-flight fields — one that consists of more than 90 players — when it all gets going today. CONTINUE
