UCLA’s Devon Bling overcomes mental rough patch on journey to the Masters – Los Angeles Times

Sara Bling died of a stroke when Devon was 13. Ever since, he has dedicated his golf to her. He remembers the sacrifices she made to help him reach this point, the long drives to tournaments, her countless bits of advice and efforts to make him feel at ease in a competition. Those lessons kept him calm at the U.S. Amateur. The result, Bling said, was “some of the best golf of my life.”
