What is your favorite part of working at the SCGA?
"Handing over a trophy, medal or plate to the winners of our tournaments. Whether it’s the top amateur in the world, Patrick Cantlay, or a 20 Handicap that wins our net championship, I enjoy seeing the same sense of pride and fulfillment in all of our champions that our tournament program provides."
What is your dream golf foursome?
"Myself, Dan Marino (my favorite athlete growing up), Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy."
