So I have been asked a number of times lately what it was like to play professional golf and why I ended up in the steel business and as a golf instructor. Both were easy answers, it’s the follow up question I am having a hard time with: Why not try it again?  People hear the passion and desire in my voice and always ask why not follow your dream, what’s stopping you?

We sit a computers for long periods of time, we have injuries, some recent some from a long time ago. We have lost flexibility as well.
