Hennington has two adult sons, Grant and Eric, who have had their picture taken with him and Minnesota golf legend Tom Lehman. But neither of them has their father’s passion for the game, he said. When he pitched the idea of fulfilling his “dumb dream” to his wife, she asked about the expense and how he would find time to do it. As he got closer, she said “what the heck, you have to do it now.”
Even if Hennington learns that somebody else had already golfed every course in Minnesota, he would still be content as “one of the only people to have done it.” No special celebrations are planned after he sinks that final putt, which he guesses will be next spring. But he may grant himself a do-over.
“I want my last hole to be a par. If not, I might tee it up and redo the hole,” he said. “Then my journey will end.”
