Everyone has a hero. Special people we admire, look up to and try to emulate.
One of my personal heroes is Jay Votaw, a neighbor, a friend, a semiretired veterinarian and an avid golfer. OK, so why is he my hero?
Jay is a paraplegic and plays golf in a specially constructed wheelchair with wide pneumatic wheels that can roll right onto a green. He usually plays from the senior men’s tees. Each Tuesday, he plays in the Brick Landing Men’s Association tournament, and on Saturday, he tees it up in the men’s shootout.
