Hickman Country Club
doing part as Patriots
Hickman Country Club will participate in the third annual Patriot Golf Day, a joint initiative of the PGA of America and the United States Golf Association.
Golfers across the country and at Hickman Country Club have the unique opportunity to donate $1 or more to benefit the Folds of Honor Foundation (FoldsofHonor.org), which provides post-secondary educational scholarships to families of those who have become disabled or lost their lives in the line of duty.
Hickman Country Club will request at least an additional $1 for each green fee that is processed Sept. 5-7.
Patriot Golf Day was inspired by Maj. Dan Rooney, a PGA professional and USGA member from Broken Arrow, Okla. Rooney has served three tours of duty in Iraq as an F-16 pilot in the 125th Fighter Squadron of the Oklahoma Air National Guard.

’Bama DL Deaderick
shot in robbery attempt
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — University of Alabama defensive lineman Brandon Deaderick was taken to a hospital after being shot in the arm during an apparent robbery attempt in Tuscaloosa, the city’s police chief said.
The shooting happened Monday night at an apartment complex.
The player was in the parking lot at the complex at about 10 p.m. when he was approached by a man wearing dark clothes, a dark ball cap and a blue bandanna over his face, the chief said.
Deaderick did not know the man, who pointed a gun and said “Give it up,” Anderson said. When Deaderick refused, the assailant fired the gun, striking the player in the arm, the local police chief said.
Police were searching for the shooter.
DCH Hospital spokesman Brad Fisher told the Mobile Press-Register that Deaderick was in good condition and was admitted for the night to a hospital room.
Deaderick, a 6-foot-4, 306-pound defensive end from Elizabethtown, Ky., started all 14 games last season as a junior. He made 36 tackles last season and was second on the team with four quarterback sacks.
