Growing up in Northern Michigan, I learned to love golf — plain and simple. I’m still working on the actual golf part, but I am a huge fan of the game nonetheless. This passion has translated into my work. In the summers of 2010 and 2011, I featured Gaylord Golf Mecca courses and made golf coverage a more prominent aspect of the Herald Times.
