Why Golf? What makes you want to work in golf?
I have always enjoyed the game of golf from a very young age and have grown to appreciate it even more as I've gotten older. I enjoy working in the golf industry because it gives me an opportunity to give back to the game that has been so good to me.
What is your favorite Rule of Golf OR what is one Rule of Golf you’d change?
My favorite Rule of Golf is “Rule 23- Loose Impediments.” This is my favorite rule in golf because without any penalty you can move any loose impediments that may be in the way of you hitting a solid shot.
