When Coe Murdock graduated from Mountain Brook High School in Birmingham, Alabama, recently, he never hesitated in choosing a tie to wear to his ceremony.

He dug into his closet and pulled out the one gifted to him by Jim Nantz of CBS Sports when Murdock attended the Masters in 2013.

“I was so honored to hear that nine years later Coe wore my tie to his graduation,” said Nantz, who inscribed the back of the tie at the time with a note reading: To Coe, My friend. Dream Big! 4/14/2013. “Sometimes you meet young people and just know they will successful in life. This is one of those people who has a presence about him and natural kindness and respect that will take him a long way. It may even lead to saving him a seat at CBS.”

In 2012, Murdock’s parents encouraged him to write a letter to Nantz because he was developing a deep affection for sports, particularly golf, and had visions of hosting the CBS broadcast someday like Nantz. The longtime voice of CBS Sports received the letter and responded with a note and signed picture.

“I thought that was going to kind of be it,” Murdock wrote in a recent email.
