Golf and Friends

My favorite way to rest and get away from studies is to get out and play golf. I have been blessed to be able to work at a club course next to the seminary, Myopia Hunt Club. Myopia is a world-class course which has hosted four U.S. Open tournaments (the last one in 1908). I work at Myopia as a junior golf professional. My good friend Trey Burdette, also a seminary student, and I have worked together there for a while.

I played the Black course at Bethpage during the break between spring semester and my first summer class. Dan Brown and I made the trip (we also played in a tournament in NJ the day before) during our break. Dan is a great guy with whom I share several interests: pastoral ministry-especially discipleship, motorcycles (he has a Yamaha FZ-R we are fixing up), and sports (especially golf). The U.S. Open was at Bethpage a few years ago (Tiger Woods won) and will be played there again in 2009. The photo is of us on the first tee at the Black course.
