My writing career grew out of my love of reading and constant search for the truth. When I decided to combine my two passions, golf and writing, my career took off. Doing what I love makes every assignment exciting. Using the latest data and my insights drawn from a lifetime in the golf industry, I create an enticing and accurate picture of the topic at hand.
