First of all, congratulations to Mateo Desmond. The 14-year-old recently won the Fort Lauderdale CC men’s club championship, a pretty nice accomplishment for someone who won’t graduate high school until 2025—and someone who still can’t drive a car.
It’s that last fact that leads to this post, because to the winner of the Fort Lauderdale CC men’s club championship goes a prime parking spot for the next 12 months. A next 12 months in which young Mateo still won’t be able to drive a car.
So what did the club do? Allow Mateo’s parents to use it? Pass it along to the runner-up? Or, just do nothing? The answer is none of the above.
Instead, they upgraded the spot so Mateo could use it in a different way. Check it out.
Well played. Although, if he’s riding a bike to the course, we’re guessing he must leave his golf bag at the club.
Anyway, Mateo seems pretty excited about it. He retweeted another look at his new spot.
Good for you, Mateo. Keep up the good play—and your good grades—and maybe you’ll be rolling in with your own upgrade in a couple of years.
