Golfing is one of my passions! I grew up playing golf with my brothers and played competitively in High School. My best memory is when I hit a hole-in-one in the same tournament my brothers were playing at (they’re both still bitter about it) and I can claim I’m the best golfer in the family! Nowadays I like to play on the weekends and rep my DT polo on the course!
