Hello from Indiana!

2 posts in this topic

Hello everyone!  Just thought I'd post a thread to introduce myself.  My name is Rob and I live in Indiana.  I have been playing golf for the better part of my life.  I remember when I was really young and my father would take me to the driving range.  Man did he hit it a mile...or so it seemed.  We weren't members at the private golf course across the street, but I would wait until dark and hit some drivers from my yard and finish up around the putting green.  Long story short, the Golf Pro did not like me so much.

I played in many local tournaments as a child but never placed extremely well.  I also never made the golf team in high school.  I have never been an extremely talented player but I enjoy the game nonetheless.  I chased a dream and eventually graduated from the Golf Academy of America in Myrtle Beach, SC.  I landed an Assistant Golf Pro position at a private golf course in Indiana and later that summer became the Head Golf Professional after the Professional accepted a position with the PGA in Florida.

I was the Golf Pro the following year, 2012, until we closed down for winter.  Unfortunately a Management Company took over the club for 2013 and wanted to hire a PGA Pro, which I was not, and demote me to the Assistant.  I did not accept the position.  So here I am, working as a Customer Account Representative for an unnamed company.

To those of you who have stuck around and read my ramblings above...I look forward to getting to know you and sharing my stories of the game we hate to love so much!
