Grew up in eastern Iowa, loving anything Hawkeyes. Born and raised a Cubs fan, and picked up being a Bills fan from my cousin. Once I moved to Chicago, the Blackhawks pretty much stole my attention. Have been playing golf since I can remember, and currently work in the golf industry in Tokyo, Japan. Have done pretty much everything you can do in the golf business. Tried playing for a living, have taught the game, worked as an assistant golf professional, etc. First job in the business was as a bag boy at age 14.
