Did you know Jamie Hutton, the boy with cancer that motivated Greg Norman to win the 1988 Heritage, is alive and well today!
“The Heritage has produced many memorable moments over the years but none are more inspirational than Greg Norman’s come-from-behind victory in 1988 with 17-year-old leukemia victim Jamie Hutton cheering him on. For those who don’t remember, days before Hutton was scheduled for a bone marrow transplant, the Thursday’s Child organization sponsored a trip for Jamie and his mother to fly from Wisconsin to Hilton Head for the Heritage. The group even set up a meeting with Norman, who was Jamie’s favorite player. What was supposed to be a quick hello transformed into an unforgettable weekend. The family was scheduled to leave on Sunday but Norman chartered a private jet so they could watch the final round. After rallying from a four-stroke deficit, Norman needed to make a 6-foot putt for par on the final hole. He told himself, “This one is for Jamie,” and stroked it into the cup. Today, Hutton has defeated cancer and is alive and well in New York.”
