Dyson men take golf trip of a lifetime

The game of golf has been a passion for the men of the Dyson family for the past 30 plus year.
Rev. Ken Dyson, 77, pastor of New Life Church in Batesville, his four sons and three grandsons play together on a regular basis throughout the year. Once a year, usually around the July 4 weekend, they have a tournament to declare the family champion for the year.

“This is always a very competitive, high pressure event because it secures bragging rights for the year,” said Todd Dyson.

In July this year, Rev. Dyson, two of his sons, Rusty 55 and Todd, 45 and grandson Tyler, 18, took a golfing vacation to the birthplace of golf, St. Andrews, Scotland (established in 1552). They played nine rounds of golf in seven days, walking all the courses but one.

There were many highlight during the trip but the one that stands out the most was the hole-in-one the grandfather made on the fourth hole of the historic Muirfield golf course. This made the fourth hole-in-one for Ken Dyson during his golfing days and was truly a trip of a lifetime.
