A new pro golfer for the Cape Region
The newest professional golfer for the Cape Region made his first appearance on November 30.
Griffin Welling Barrows reported in at 8 pounds 8 ounces, and 20 inches long, and is the son of Baywood Greens head golf professional Brian Barrows and his wife Jennifer. Grandmom JoJo Barrows and Granddad (Rehoboth Beach Country Club head pro) Ron Barrows, are also deeply proud of the newest addition to the family.
Granddad Ron made sure Griffin will work on his grip as soon as possible, by placing a new driver in the nursery when Griffin recently came home from Christiana Hospital.
