How I Got Into Golf
Although I love the sport of golf now, I actually didn’t grow up paying golf. Growing up in Waterford, Michigan I couldn’t play one sport all year round because of the extreme change in seasons we have so I played a lot of different sports. I played baseball in the summer, football in the fall, basketball in the winter and soccer in the spring. I actually had to stay away from golf in the summer because it ruins your baseball swing. I went on to play division 1 college football at Central Michigan University, but once football was over I didn’t have any sports left to compete in. That’s when I found golf.
After college, I moved up north with my cousin and started working at a timeshare company that owned three golf courses, two private courses and one public course. One of my perks of the job just happened to be free golf on any of the three courses any time I was not working. I took full advantage of this and went out golfing all the time, even by myself quite a bit. The great thing about playing so much was that I began to get really good at it, and the better you get the more fun it is. Unfortunately the free golf had to stop at some point, and it stopped because I met the love of my life and moved back to Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, where I went to college, to be with her.
I married my wife in October 2005 and we’re still going strong today. I had a step daughter, who I am proud to say I adopted and she is now my daughter, and a son. Luckily for my son I have gotten him into golf at a younger age so he can enjoy it for much longer than I can.
The Purpose Of This Website
I was born with a passion to help people. People now-a-days are in such a hurry, living their busy stressed out lives. I like to be the person who can make things a little better in their lives, and what better way to do that than with golf. Sports have always been a great way to get great exercise and blow off steam. But as we age, our bodies can’t handle the intense wear and tear of many of the sports we used to enjoy playing. That’s why I recommend golf to everyone
Golf is a sport that can be very competitive at times so you can still get the rush of competition, and other times it can be fun and laid back. You can compete against opponents, play on a team, or just play against your own best score. Sometimes it’s even fun to get some buddies together, drink some beer, smoke some cigars and not worry about your score whatsoever. And best of all, it is a sport for all ages!
So what does this website have to do with helping people? Like I mentioned earlier, the better you are the more fun it is. Some people come to the golf course to get away from life for a bit and to relax, but a couple shanks into the woods or ponds and they are more stressed out than if they stayed at home. Purchasing the right training tools and equipment can elevate your game which will allow you to have a lot more fun. And more fun = less stress!
THE GOAL OF YOUR SITE
The main goal of my website is to help people improve their golf game while looking good doing it. There’s nothing worse than going out on the course with some buddies or with co-workers and hacking up the course. No one is expected to be perfect out there, but it’s a different story if you are embarrassing yourself. Take some time to watch some training videos, purchase some good equipment and training aids, and get out on the course and impress everyone!
Now, you don’t have to be the best, but take the time and teach yourself what club to use in what situation, the basic techniques of swinging your clubs, and the proper form for putting, golf etiquette, etc. Learn all of this in one place, Essential Golf Accessories!
