How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?
I was allowed to pull my granddaddy's Haig Ultras around the Evergreen Golf Course circa 1966 when we would visit Colorado every other summer. No irrigation, oiled sand "greens", rubber mats for teeing grounds and at some point, an Astro Turf green on the first hole. It's a bit different these days. He was a teacher, and gently pounded Hogan's Five Lessons into me at an early age. I play off a four, been as low as a one years ago. Still have the Haigs.
What do you love about golf?
I love being outdoors, in any sort of weather, taking the beauty. I enjoy trying to decipher what the architect intended, what was already there and what was disturbed. I love the history of the game and the honor it demands of us. I love a scrappy muni track and a posh historic club equally. I love playing against the course and wishing well for my opponent.
