My uncle played briefly on the old Nike Tour and after going to an event my dad asked if I’d like to try golf and that was that. As time went on, I got pretty good, played at Liberty University and decided to turn pro. I played for a while on mini tours all over the east coast before deciding to settle down a bit. The next natural step seemed to be working in golf to give back to the game and to continue playing tournaments as possible!
As to what ignited the attention and desire, I’ve always loved having the pressure on me and not relying on others. Playing baseball growing up, I always felt off if I went 5 for 5 and we lost or went 0-fer and we won. As if I couldn’t be happy about my play or I didn’t contribute. In addition I’ve always liked the fact that I can play in solitude or with friends. The diversity of the game and how it is played is paramount to it grabbing my attention. Lastly, I love the competition and camaraderie that comes in golf that differs from other sports.
