I was inspired by my late father Dan Parker Sr and Kevin Triefenbach (PGA professional at Gateway National in Madison Illinois). They both showed me that golf is all about the “hang” with your friends and family. And that playing golf with others is the best character revealing tool they have ever seen. My desire to enter the golf industry came after meeting Tommy Armour III in a charity event. He gave me an opportunity to work in Texas at a place called Vaquero and it changed my life. I am grateful to be a part of the golf industry as I truly believe it is the best game ever created.
