This is my buddy, Jack Mankin. (His clients call him Golf Ball.) Best we can figure, Jack has recovered and sold around 163,000 golf balls at McCabe Golf Course over his 46-year stint.
Jack is a product of West Nashville Junior High School and Cohn High School. Thanks to St. Thomas Hospital, he’s now getting SSI Disability and living in a nice apartment for the first time.
Because of brain surgery, people find him hard to understand… but he is plenty sharp. And he works tirelessly finding stuff and selling it at the recycle places, in addition to his golf ball gig.
Say hello to him for me when you see him. He’s a good man.
