Against Overwhelming Odds -VIDEO
The Springer family shares their emotional story of surviving and qualifying
College sweethearts Emma and Hayden Springer are the All-American couple: she works as a neurosurgical nurse while he is chasing his golf dreams. The joy they felt when Emma became pregnant turned to grave concern when their baby was diagnosed with Trisomy 18, a deadly chromosomal condition. Sage Springer was not expected to leave the hospital but, eight months later, she is a living miracle. Defying a different kind of odds, Hayden played his way into the U.S. Open through qualifying. This week at Torrey Pines will be a celebration of a remarkable family.
