"Rub of Green" is a golf term used to describe bounces a golf ball takes when it comes back to earth after its short flight. Sometimes the bounces are good, and sometimes they are bad. Tom Jensen felt the same about life, there are good and bad bounces, you just have to deal with the results. His life changed in an instant due to circumstances beyond his control. Jensen's life was simple and fun, and full of passion for golf. He learned to caddy at a young age and became an accomplished golfer, winning junior and shoolboy tournaments. His future was bright and his focus was clear. Everything changed when the United States entered the war in Europe and after the Japanes bombed Pearl Harbor. Like millions of other his age, Jensen joined the Army. After 23 months of battling the Japanese in the South Pacific and receiving a battlefield promotion at the age of 20, his future changed forever in a jungle clearing on the island of Luzon. This is the story of how Tom Jensen dealt with the bad bounces life can have, and how he realized his dream and helped others realize theirs.
