Check out those pants! Just for fun, can you name what event and year this is from?

One of my duties is to help grow the game, so it’s always a good day when I get to meet young golfers and try to cultivate a passion for the game. I had a great time with @FirstTeePhilly - a youth development organization introducing golf and its inherent values to young people.


How it started: How it’s going:


Sweet memories with Vivienne and our eldest daughter, Jennifer. Success would not be the same if you are unable to enjoy it with your family.
