I’ve been working on a story about a talented golfer and former graduate of UT Austin, Jhonattan Vegas and his quest to play professional golf on the PGA Tour. Sportswriter Kevin Robbins’ story will be in print later this month about Vegas’ life in Venezuela and his family fearing for his future deciding to send him to America for a better life.  I’ll have photographs to share later, but when I was leaving I ran into Thomas Allen, five years old, walking to his mother’s car after a day on the links at the UT Golf Club at Steiner Ranch. A future star in the making. Maybe! A golf enthusiast, definitely!
