What you like most about your job:
Working with different people on a daily basis.  Also like the variety in what my job responsibilities are.

What makes your course special/favorite thing about your course:

Best golf tip you can give or ever got:
Posture is 65% of the golf swing.  Poor posture leads to poor swings, good posture leads to good swings.

Parting Shots:
The golf business has been challenging for many over the past 10 years but there is nothing I’d rather do then spend my day working in and around this great game.  It’s a lifetime sport for all to enjoy and as a PGA Professional I have been able to experience so many parts of this wonderful game.
