I started playing at the age of 7 where I would chip in my parents backyard over the fence to my neighbors backyard (who also was a golfer). I played both JV and Varsity golf in high school, played on my university's team on a scholarship for 4 years, and play professionally on mini-tours in Georgia.
My second job (outside of working a 9-5 to support my family) I work at a golf retailer in repairs and as a fitter. I am certified in Titleist, Callaway, Cobra, and Taylor Made fitting. Working at the store allows me to test all the different clubs, as well as talk with reps from the companies about the new products coming down the pipeline and even view them if they have the demo with them.
