Family Golf Week Surprises Parent & Child Team Classic Winner with Free Entry

The team at Family Golf Week wanted to surprise Rob Barto, part of the 2019 Parent & Child Team Classic winning duo, as he celebrated his birthday recently in Florida. Coordinating with daughter Tessa Barto, the team greeted Rob with gifts for his birthday, along with a special prize to enable Rob and Tessa to return to the Grand Strand in 2020 to defend their crown. See how the surprise unfolded!

Hey everyone. Good afternoon. We’re down here at Cape Coral with the Family Golf Week golf tournament, getting ready to wish our Parent/Child winners from 2019, Rob, a happy birthday, and surprise him with a entry fee into next year’s event. He’s actually inside right now having lunch with friends and he thinks that’s his birthday surprise. So Rob, what do you think? Is he going to be excited?

Rob Mosser:
Yeah, awesome. I think he’s going to be absolutely just floored after we present this prize to him. And we’re going to get Tessa, his daughter, on FaceTime so she can experience the whole presentation live.

Rob Barto:
Thank you. Who’re you?

Mike Buccerone:
[crosstalk 00:03:51] We want to invite you and your daughter-

Rob Barto:
You’re kidding me.

Mike Buccerone:
back to next year’s event on us. If you pick up the check for lunch!

Rob Barto:
I will!

Mike Buccerone:
Thank God! Finally!

Rob Barto:
Well, we wanted to invite y’all. [crosstalk 00:04:00]

Speaker 6:
Well this is you getting to hold a big check, like you won a giant tournament. [crosstalk 00:04:10]

Rob Barto:
Thank you. You going to come?

Speaker 5:
No.[Crosstalk 00:04:14].

Speaker 7:
Of course!

Rob Barto:
Thank you very much, that is … unbelievable! I can’t believe this! What did I do? Thanks. [crosstalk 00:04:25]

Rob Barto:
I was totally shocked. I mean, I saw the guys walking up and starting to surround me and I was, I had no idea what was going on, without a doubt. Yeah. Tessa’s a great golfer, she’s very competitive. The best thing is, we have such a great time out there together, playing and enjoying the company of the other pairs that we’re playing with. We have such a good time, and that makes it even easier to compete in something like this when you’re relaxed and having fun!
