A: Probably just the feeling I get as an instructor when a student hits a shot that makes them go “WOW.”

Q: What is the most rewarding part of your job?
A: The most rewarding part is seeing a brand-new student get hooked on the game, improving and wanting to play more, even dedicating themselves to the game.
Q: In your opinion, what makes golf great and fun?
