HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC (WTOC) -

For one RBC Heritage fan, the strong winds interrupted her chances of getting a tour of the Lowcountry on a blimp.

Erica Sullivan earned a once in a lifetime VIP golf experience for receiving the most Facebook likes in a social media writing contests.

Sulivan, who is attending the Heritage with her father, wrote about her love for golf and how the game gave her and her dad their own special bond.

Even though Sullivan didn't get the tour, she still got to see the blimp up close, and most importantly, her dad was there.

"This week has been really special," said Sullivan. "Yesterday he kind of took me around the couse, and we met several golfers, and he kind of told stories about his past with golf."

Sullivan's father said riding in a blimp was on his bucket list, even though it didn't happen today, it will one day.
