I visited the Big Island of Hawaii from December 6-12 on a press trip, where I played five courses along the Kohala Coast. It was a phenomenal experience, highlighted by the awesome company, which included Ross Birch, the head of Big Island Visitor’s Bureau, Nathan Kam, the President of Anthology PR Group, Randy Sportak, sportswriter for the Calgary Sun, and Jason Deegan, senior writer for GolfChannel.com.

I already wrote about the culmination of our trip, playing in the Hawaii State Open Pro-Am with Parker McLachlin at Mauna Lani’s South Course. Here now, you can read about the rest of our trip…

I visited the Big Island of Hawaii from December 6-12 on a press trip, where I played five courses along the Kona Coast. It was a phenomenal experience, highlighted by the awesome company, which included Ross Birch, the head of Big Island Visitor’s Bureau, Nathan Kam, the President of Anthology PR Group, Randy Sportak, sportswriter for the Calgary Sun, and Jason Deegan, senior writer for GolfChannel.com. You’ll be hearing about all the courses where we teed it up, but I thought I start with the culmination of our week, which was playing in the Hawaii State Open Pro-Am.

Now, the world no. 3 golfer has revealed that he and his wife are expecting their first child in nine weeks, according to Australian Golf Digest.

As you’ve surely gathered from my social media channels, I’m staying at nice resorts, playing golf, eating well and taking in gorgeous sunsets on the Big Island.
