Jim Thorpe Invitational creates strength in numbers

CHAMPIONSGATE, Fla. – A few years ago, one of Jim Thorpe’s daughters wanted to have a frank conversation. Her father was playing golf five days a week, he had had a good career on the PGA TOUR and PGA TOUR Champions, winning three and 13 times, respectively, but she didn’t think he seemed happy.

“I’m very happy,” Thorpe said.

“You have a funny way of showing it,” she responded.
