Charles Musick (’65) – Golf
For four years, Charles Musick was not only the best golfer at Columbus, he was one of the best high school golfers in South Florida.
In four years of varsity golf, Charles Musick did not lose a single match. On three different occasions, he shot a 32 on nine holes at the Biltmore golf course. Playing his senior year for Columbus Hall of Fame member John Miller, Charles won the all-city championship and led the Explorers to a 9-5 record. The Miami Herald named him the city’s Golfer of the Year.
The famed golf professional, Bob Tos-key was so impressed with Charles’ game that he contacted his friends at the University of Notre Dame. That led to a golf scholarship and four years on the Fighting Irish golf team. Charles served as team captain at Notre Dame during his final two seasons.
Charles Musick went on to become a commercial airline pilot, a job he held for 37 years.
Charles and his wife have three children, and Charles still plays golf to this day. He carries a 6-handicap.
