Why golf?

There’s nothing I can say about golf that hasn’t been said a million times before, but these things have been said a millions time before because they’re all true. It’s the greatest game in the world. No game offers what golf offers. It’s the ultimate social activity. You’re outside, for an extended period of time, usually with great friends, challenging yourself on acres of manicured landscape. No one round is like the other. The worst day on the golf course beats the best day at a desk. And golf continually rewards players of any level and any age in a myriad of different ways. The scorecard is secondary to the fellowship, banter, laughs, and camaraderie of your foursome. Why golf? Because it’s the best game. And who wouldn’t want to work in an industry serving and shepherding the best game?

Dream foursome?

I’m going to ask the starter for a favor and get six people out there; my mom, my dad, my three brothers, and me. I don’t want to play with Tiger or any other TOUR pro. I’d be too nervous and golf isn’t fun for me when I’m nervous. At my age, I’d want to have four uninterrupted hours with my family—laughing and slapping the ball around and staying off our phones. Usually family-time like that is reserved for holidays. And holidays are full of obligations and stress. To have my family on the golf course, in a big group, would be a dream.
