Here's some positive news just before Christmas on a story you might be familiar with:

Remember Tucker Anderson? He is the son of swing coach Todd Anderson. Tucker suffered a a blood clot in the brain, as well as several fractured vertebrae and a broken right orbital socket, in a car accident while a 19-year-old student at the University of West Florida in September 2012. (Click here to read Jeff Babineau's piece on Tucker's recovery shortly after the accident.)

Six months later, in March, Tucker and his dad made a trip to the Honda Classic and walked 27 holes. (Click here to read more on the trip via Jim McCabe.)

He has continued to make progress, resuming his college education during the fall semester. Wednesday, Tucker accomplished another big feat, his dad announcing it on Twitter:

@ToddAndersonGLC: "15 months after being in a coma with a traumatic brain injury my son Tucker makes a 3.0 GPA at College of Coastal Georgia. #Very blessed!"

Congrats, Tucker!
