Below we’ll give a quick summary of our favorite profiles, and remember, if you have someone you think deserves to be featured don’t hesitate to email Website Content Manager Peter Conroy at email@example.com
Ken Eichele: Easily our favorite profile of the year, we talked to Ken about growing up in Queens, compiling his golf set one club at a time, all the way through his time as a Battalion Chief in Lower Manhattan and the tribulations of Sept. 11th.
Kevin Marsh: Not only did Kevin have a terrific year on the amateur circuit, he had some interesting stories to tell, including his time as a professional and his one tournament stint as coach of his alma mater’s golf team, where he led the squad to the NCAA Championship
Adam Mitchell: Probably the feel-good story of our series, Adam was surprised by his father at the final round of the Porter Cup, showing up to man his bag and help him recover from a tough third round and score the victory.
Danny Lee: Danny was the big surprise of the year in the amateur golf world, coming out of nowhere to win the U.S. Amateur and the Western Amateur. Our profile is the most complete you’ll find online.
Bob Hullender: We wrote this article a while ago, but the premise holds. If you see this grandfatherly figure at a local San Antonio golf course and he asks you to play buck a hole, you’d be best off politely declining. At 71, he’s still going plenty strong.
Brady Exber: Is the president of the Southern Nevada Golf Association and a near constant presence at the top of the leaderboard in his home state, but he got a chance to shine before a national audience at the U.S. Amateur
