Why am I doing this?
I started a PGA HOPE chapter at Nemadji GC in 2022 and we host a Folds of Honor event yearly to support Veterans and their families. Participating in 100 holes of golf will provide another avenue for me to further support my fellow Veterans.
I am a Marine Veteran and have been a PGA Member since 2000. I learned to play golf in the junior golf program at Pokegama Golf Course in Grand Rapids. It was only when I was stationed in Japan that the fire to play golf began to burn brightest. That passion spilled over into me pursuing a golf career after my honorable discharge from the Marines in Beaufort South Carolina. Since then, I have worked at Private, Resort, and Public facilities throughout my career. I have a passion to support my fellow Veterans and this event is just one way I can do that.
