Lona Skutt Motivated Joel Dahmen to Get Back to the Golf Course
Joel Dahmen has a long generic history of cancer in his family. In 2004, while Joel was in high school, his mother, Jolyn Dahmen was diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer and she died of the disease the following year. Four years after his mother’s death, his brother Zach was also diagnosed with testicular cancer. Thankfully, Zach survived it after chemotherapy.
Six years after, in 2011, shortly after Joel began playing golf professionally, he was also diagnosed with the same medical condition as his brother and without health insurance, the future seemed blurred for the golf player. Fortunately for him, he met a millionaire who offered to pay for the treatment and after weeks of chemotherapy, he survived.
Having survived such a near-death experience, Joel seemed more grounded and focused than before. However, after falling short of qualifying for the PGA Tour with a finish outside the top-25 of Web.com earners for 2016, he was at low. Lona, who was his girlfriend at the time, gave him an ultimatum: Get back on the golf course or get a real job.
The push and the shove were all Joel needed to get back to the golf course. In an interview Joel acknowledged the positive impact Lona made in his life, he said:
“She’s been with me at my lowest and my highest, She is a big reason I am where I am, always supporting me, but also kicking my butt when I need it.”
What is Lona Skutt’s Net Worth?
