Knicely Done: The Right Choice

It was just supposed to be another day on the links for 75-year old Mike O"Hanlon. He paid cash in the Knolls pro shop for his round and headed for the first tee.

He didn't realize that along the way he dropped his money clip by the practice green and having just gone to the bank, there was a considerable amount of money in the clip.

Two hours later, when O'Hanlon reached into his pocket to pay for lemonade in the clubhouse, his heart sank.

"I never thought I would see that money again," sighed O'Hanlon in an interview with WOWT6 News.

Turns out, earlier, two young men who played on the Millard North golf team this spring spotted the money clip in the grass.

"I looked over there and I thought I saw a 10 dollar bill," explained 18-year old Blake Busch. "And then Gannon (Murray) realized it was a money clip."

Gannon is 15 and together they decided the money should be turned in to the clubhouse.

So it was a great relief for O"Hanlon when he asked at the pro shop counter if anybody had turned in a money clip.

"It was all there," said O'Hanlon.

He promptly drove a golf cart onto the course and profusely thanked the young men who decided to do the right thing.

"I put myself in that situation and thought what if that was mine," said Murray. "How would I feel?"

Since then O"Hanlon has enjoyed several rounds with the long hitting youngsters and is happy to tell others about their outstanding character.

"I'm very grateful. I hope to have their friendship for a good long time."

Knicely Done!
