No, I ain’t talking about Christmas or retirement. I am talking the upcoming golf season. The coaching gig never gets old. Like I have always said, the game of golf is unique. It does not matter if you’re a scratch player or a 25 handicap, it is all about having fun and passing something on to the next generation of golfers. I always give credit to two guys who got me where I am today: Coach Hollister who took me to a par-3 course when I was in the 8th grade, and my dad who told me to play on my high school team, because “you will get to play for free.” And he bought me my first set of clubs.
Holy crap, 35 years later I am getting paid to do what I would gladly do for free! I am playing some of the nicest courses in the area..for free. And I am passing on the best parts of the game to young fellows who will be sharing the same info long after I check out of this life. This is payment a plenty for me.
