Q: How did you get started with Adams Golf?
I was a Club Professional in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area for seven years prior to joining Adams Golf. Being 6’5, an instructor and club fitter, I had always been fascinated by golf club design and results of properly fit golf clubs. I joined Adams Golf in 2006 as part of the Custom Fitting Department.
Q: What is one interesting fact about yourself that you are willing to share
I love playing Trivial Pursuit and can get a little too competitive. I love learning random facts. One of my favorite channels on TV is the History Channel.
Q: What are you favorite hobbies, activities, places to visit, etc.?
I love to play golf when I am able to, but my two year old son takes up a lot of my time. I love movies and anything dealing with electronics.
Q: What was your dream job growing up?
I always wanted to work in the golf industry. As all young golfers I had hopes to play on the PGA Tour, but learned there at lots of players better than me. While being a Club Professional, I got to see lots of facets of the industry. I really enjoy working for Adams Golf and seeing how products are designed, manufactured, marketed and sold.
Q: What is your favorite/best club in your golf bag? Why?
My favorite club in my bag is actually two clubs. I have had two Idea Pro Black 9031 Deep Face 17* and 21* hybrids with Project X HB6 in my bag for the past 3 years. These are the lowest ball flight hybrids I have ever hit. We no longer make these heads so I would be very disappointed if any thing ever happened to them.
