A Word From the Author
The people I have met have made my life special. If you’re a golfer reading this, think about how many people you’ve met and made friends with because you played golf. Then take another person who doesn’t play golf. I don’t care where you are or what sport you’re in, it can’t compare, in my mind, to golf in bringing people together. Golf is a world in itself. It’s an experience that’s really worth living.
It’s been a wonderful life, I must say, and I say so with all humility and with appreciation for the people who made it so special. I hope the following pages adequately express that sentiment and that they illuminate for you some of those important things I learned along the way.
