NatPost Column: DeCorso's Long Road

Latest National Post column is now online.

Here’s a taste:

Bryan DeCorso isn’t used to all the attention. Standing on the driving range at this week’s tournament on the Nationwide Tour in Fort Smith, Ark., the Guelph, Ont., native is stopped every few minutes by his fellow golf pros. They all want to congratulate him on winning the South Georgia Classic last Sunday.

DeCorso is on the telephone explaining how he gave up the game for nine months to work as a contractor when the next peer wanders by.

“Way to go, man,” you can hear clearly in the background.

“Oh, thanks,” he answers.

“Where were we?” he says to the caller.

For the first time since he was a rookie on the Canadian Tour in 1996, DeCorso, 36, is catching people’s attention. The win was his first in 12 years. A lot has changed in the game, he points out, including the money. For his win on Sunday, DeCorso won more than five times the $18,000 he had taken home for his previous victory on the Canadian Tour.
