The ODP Foundation celebrates the bond between David R. Mitchell and his daughter, Elizabeth K. Mitchell Busby, whose life ended way too soon.

At 7, Liz thought driving the golf cart was more exciting than a sport that later filtered into every facet of her life. Sitting on her father’s lap, he encouraged her to keep the cart “on da path.” Eventually, the phrase was shortened to ODP and became their version of ‘on my way.’

Their relationship grew as Liz became more active in their golf outings. This quality time on the course fostered their close friendship and Liz’s confidence. Their father-daughter bond helped mold Liz into a resilient woman. If doubt snuck in, David always reminded her, “You’ve got this!”

The only woman, Liz, reigned as the Queen in the Kings of the Course golf league. Frequently, she ruled the game by beating her male opponent. Wherever she played golf, Liz dispelled notions of being just a pretty girl. Men often muttered, “Wow! She’s got game!”

Like a well-tended golf course, David and Liz’s relationship was beautiful. The ODP Foundation encourages similar bonds between fathers and daughters on and off the golf course.
