Q. What do you enjoy most about the game and the business of golf?
I enjoy the fact that I am able to go to the golf course ever day and call it work. The part I love most about the game of golf is that it is just you that has full control over all of the outcomes and when you hit that “great shot” it feels pretty good! On the business side I like discovering/learning new strategies on how to make a golf course successful.

My Parents had a big impact on me as a junior golfer which motivated me to take it further as a career.
