The game of golf has been a valuable component to my life and the direction that it has taken me in my life. I did not begin playing seriously until I was in my early twenties and I still remember my first job as a cart boy at Chestatee Golf Club. Eventually, I found myself as Golf Professional at the esteemed River Club in Suwanee, Georgia, and eventually a golf coach at Buford High School while teaching AP English Language and Composition.
I can still remember all of the influential people that I met through the game. Seeing the dedication that players have for improving their game and the game of others has now led me to Square One for Youth where we are not only teaching kids how to play the game, but also how the game can improve their daily lives as they grow older.
As an avid reader, there are also a plethora of books out there on the game of golf that teach and express many of the life lessons that I have learned and come to hold dear as they game has become a part of my life. I read a great article the other day about where folks have chimed in regarding their favorite books involving the game. Many of these authors I have read, including Harvey Penick, John Feinstein, and Dr. Bob Rotella. I invite you to take a look at some of these books listed in the attached article; they are not only great reads, but a keen introspective look into how the game can mold us into better players and individuals.
