History is a collection of moments. Sports is no different. From the Redskins three Super Bowl victories, to Tiger Woods running away with the 1997 Masters, to Jordan Spieth’s amazing recovery on the 13th hole at The Open in 2017, moments become lasting memories in history.
Tiger Woods announced today that he will play in the 2018 National to be held June 25-July 1 at TPC Potomac.
I spend my days as the head chef at TPC Potomac. But this story is about the most important meal I cook each year. It’s not a meal I cook at the club, but one I cook for a very special type of club.
One of my most memorable moments in golf did not occur in a tournament or even a round of golf but rather a casual conversation on the putting green at the Naval Academy Golf Course in July 2000. I was a plebe at the Naval Academy in the middle of Plebe Summer boot camp and the conversation was with a teammate on the Navy golf team.
It was the greatest honor of my life to serve six years in the United States Marine Corps. Amidst the trials and tribulations associated with daily military challenges, several years ago I found a week-long escape in an annual volunteer opportunity. It was at this event where I would begin to forge lifelong friendships and unforgettable experiences.
