Commentary:

I grew up playing sports from age eight through high school. It was so much more than just a game to me. It taught me how to win, how to lose, camaraderie, and commitment. I have long lasting friendships that developed with my teammates, coaches and even some opponents. I continued to play golf for over 40 years with my coach Ralph Bergstrum. He was a great inspiration to me, as well as my parents who supported me year after year.
