Shaun and I shared many great times on and off the golf course over the years. My wife and I will both miss him dearly, and will always admire his fight, and positivity. For many of my friends, Shaun and HNGC were synonymous - a place he loved so much, and where everyone wanted to share his company. We also know how much Shaun cared, and would do anything for his family, and our thoughts and prayers are with them. I’ll never watch another Georgia football game without remembering the times we shared.
