Not sure what to say?

Tom was an inspiration to all of us junior golfers. He taught me the meaning of business in a very unique format and gave me great opportunities. Thx Tom I miss you.

Tom taught me the great game of golf. I am sure i was not the easiest kid to employ or teach.
I will always be grateful for his free lessons at the range.

Tom was my first golf teacher in Altus Oklahoma over 50 years ago. He was a great and patient teacher who I will never forget.

My heart felt prayers go out to you and family.
Love always

Tom taught me to play golf when I was in junior high. I have played many rounds of golf with him throughout the years and certainly got to play some upscale courses when he came to Phoenix to play. He was a very thoughtful and generous man. He will live in my heart forever!

Tom was such a loving, generous and thoughtful man. He dated my mother for several years before she died of cancer. He was so kind to her and towards the end of her life when she was totally blind he would take dinner to her and a bottle of wine and visit with her. Before she got so bad he would let her play golf for free and provide her with a cart. He helped my brother and me learn to play golf and was such a patient coach and teacher. Tom was a prince of a man and he touched our lives...

I am a grateful beneficiary of Tom's never ending support for junior golf. He inspired us all and built a wonderful community of golfers. He will forever be my mentor and pro.

Tom Swiney was one of the finest men I ever had the privilege to met.
