‘’So you flew out there?’’ ‘’Nah I drove 14 hours total Monday and Tuesday to make it."
I probably got asked that questions 10 times since returning from Cromwell, CT. Some people have difficulty understanding why a normal person would drive 7 hour straight each way to attend a PGA Tour event. For me, it never really crossed my mind. I was more asking myself, where could I play a few holes when I arrive at 7PM on Monday evening? Even though English is my second language, I really wanted to share this experience with you and how much it meant to me.
I was never really interested in music or arts. Growing up, you would never find me playing with Legos or in the sandbox. Nope, I was building my own three-hole course in my parents’ backyard using the weed eater to cut the grass down as low as I could and crafting my own course cards. That was the kind of kid I was.
