When we were little Zeb was an excellent big brother. He always looked out for my twin brother and me, and he was a good role model for us. Zeb was the first to try baseball, basketball, soccer, tennis and golf. He loved sports from the beginning and, maybe because we wanted to be more like him, so did we. We played sports outside all the time with other kids in our neighborhood. It was so much fun.
I remember one time Zeb showed me a golf course he designed. I remember thinking it was a weird thing for him to do, but he was excited about. That was going to be his golf course.
I played most of the sports my brother did, but I grew to love soccer and track and field. I was fast. I could use my speed to beat all the other girls on the field. Zeb will tell you that he had a lot to do with my speed; if I didn’t grow up playing sports with him and his speed pushing me to go faster then I would never have gotten a scholarship for track and field… and maybe he’s right.
Being able to run fast doesn’t help much on the golf course. I never developed the same love for golf as Zeb. He loved being at the golf course so much he got his first job there. And then he got a 2nd job at another golf course and stayed there for years. Even after that, he got his teaching credential and coached the high school golf team.
He has always been connected to the game of golf.
Now that we’re older Zeb is still an excellent big brother. We’ve been working together for a few years now and he is still a good role model.
I built this site for my brother’s birthday. I know this is a perfect gift for him. He can combine his love of golf with his love of helping passionate business owners grow their business. Now he can share his experience and knowledge in this place.
