Three years ago, Clinton resident Jordan Keshler suffered a stroke and went into a coma for two days.

Keshler worsened during a procedure to implant a left ventricular assist device (LVAD) at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester. In the months that followed, the 41-year-old superintendent of Barker Brook Golf Course wondered how much longer he could hold out.

But, a year later, Keshler got a heart transplant. From this Friday to Sunday, he is attacking the Pinehurst Resort in North Carolina. The Round of a Lifetime Foundation pays for all expenses for Keshler’s trip to the Tar Heel State.

“It’s surreal, something I had hoped for but didn’t know if it would ever happen,” he said. “It will be great to be able to walk where legends have walked before and see their perspective.”
