Why I like working at Swing King:
Everyone enjoys what they do plus we have a lot of fun together. This collaboration only fuels our success both within the business and in our personal lives as well. Being a start-up means everyone gets to use their creative minds in the pursuit of the coveted hole-in-one. Plus I love golf and they actually pay me to hang out at golf courses, throughout the country, all day long. I just checked the box for “dream job.”
Do you have a Hole-in-One?:
I’d take a mulligan for:
Knowing earlier in my life that love, appreciation and gratitude are more important than money.
Who would play me in “Swing King - The Movie”:
Most memorable round of golf:
Cabo del Sol in Cabo San Lucas, what Jack Nicklaus called the "three finest finishing holes in all of golf.”
