I was inspired to get into the golf industry nearly my whole life. My parents were both avid golfers, and I grew up in the height of the Tiger era. I was always a huge baseball player, but when Tiger won the Masters in 97’ he really transformed the sport. We had tons of athletes leaving major sports (Football, Baseball, Basketball) and starting to play golf on a more serious level. Golf became “cool” all of a sudden. This trend really motivated me to enter the golf industry. I worked outside services all through high school at a country club, and then enrolled in the PGM program at Methodist University. Ironically I’ve never worked outside of the golf industry and don’t see that ever changing.
