"I have been playing golf for twelve years off and on. I'm just now picking it up again. Some of my friends played and they invited me to join them and I loved the game from the start. I play here at Rio Hondo Golf Club mostly. Sometimes, my friends and I will play at a course in Fountain Valley.
"I love the game because it is relaxing. You must focus on the shot at hand. You're not thinking of work. You're not thinking of all your headaches. Just focus on the ball going forward. Second, I can take the lessons I learn as I play, focus, patience, fair play, discipline, civility, practice to get better, spending quality time with others, enjoying the surroundings, etc., and use them in the rest of my life away from the course. That's the way I see it."
