Why golf?

"Golf has been in my life since I was about 11. I was forced into doing golf at age 11 and to me I did not like it so much, but once I got to high school, everything changed. During my four years, I developed a bond with my coach, and he made me fall in love with the game of golf. As the coach he was, he never gave up on me when I had my bad days. After high school I was still in touch with him and got a job offer with his to be his assistant. Of course I had to accept. Ever since high school I was all about golf. I would have never thought I would get the chance to come back to my alma mater to start coaching. Golf has always been a big part in my life, whether it was someone forcing me to do it or just me enjoying it on my own. Golf has made me the person I am today."

Dream foursome?
