Our KidSwing Golf Tournament Is Celebrating 15 Years!

2003 ... the year it all began! What was happening in the world when KidSwing first teed off?
  • In sports…Mike Weir won the Masters, the San Antonio Spurs won the NBA Championship, the Marlins won the World Series and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won the Super Bowl.
  • At the movies….The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King and Finding Nemo were tops at the movie theater. Chicago won the Oscar for Best Picture.
  • On Television…CSI, American Idol, Survivor and Friends were must-see TV.
  • On Radio…50 Cent’s “In Da Club” was number one on the Billboard Charts, and Beyonce was “Crazy in Love.”
  • At the bookstore…Everyone was reading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
  • Crazy but true…Baseball fan Steve Bartman reached for a ball that Chicago Cubs outfielder Moses Alou was trying to catch, continuing a Cubs World Series drought that would last 14 more years.
  • Music news…The iTunes Music Store was Time Magazine’s invention of the year.
  • In technology….Camera phones became popular.
