My father inspired me to get into the game as it is undoubtedly “the game for life” in many ways. I was fortunate to grow up 20 miles from St. Andrews in Scotland and my playground included too many famous courses to list. Having competed against the likes of Sam Torrance and Ewen Murray, I knew I would never make it to the top but I never lost my love for the game. Being at an international level at another sport helped me get over my disappointment.
Returning to the game as an corporate controller at a major golf management company, I parlayed my work through an IPO into a golf management position at a facility. Becoming a PGA Member was a natural career path after being immersed in the culture. The past 23 years have been worth every minute.
