Golf Scholarship
“From what we get, we can make a living; what we give, however, makes a life.” ~ Arthur Ashe I overheard the golf coach at my daughter's golf camp say that he can get any girl with average golf skills a scholarship to college. But I thought to myself, what...
Wesley Bryan From Cart Path
Trick shot guru and newly minted PGA Tour professional Wesley Bryan is doing it again at the Valspar Championship, making a birdie from the cart path. I can’t imagine that any other PGA player would even consider taking this shot, much less pulling it off by hitting it close enough...
