Officially I was born in Hamilton, grew up in Burlington, and moved to Calgary in 1985.

Personally I sometimes think my life truly began in 1985 when I took my first drive down the Club road in January going to an interview with Steve Stiven and Al Ewen, then the Club Pro and Club Manager. It was a winter day with fresh snow on the ground and a clear blue sky. I knew right away that this was a special place.

And today I let everyone know I have the best head office in Calgary.

I grew up in a non golfing family. At 13 I went with some friends to a local 9 hole course to play for the first time and fell in love with the game. I still remember my score on my first 18 hole round - 116.

I often remind myself how important golf is in my life, and I make a special effort to find time to play the game I love even if it is just once a week and spend time with my wife Jacquie and our children, Brett and Nicole.

I feel especially proud of a recent recognition from our peers that involves the entire Golf Shop: our shop was selected by the Alberta and Canadian PGA as the 2010 Merchandiser Of The Year.

As far as my golf dreams go, they stay close to home but one day I would love to play in Scotland or Bandon Dunes.
