It’s time for another Team Titleist Member Spotlight and in this latest edition, we check in with our good friend Marc S. from Texas.
Like a lot of us here at Team Titleist, Marc is a passionate golfer who thinks about his game 24/7. As for his favorite club in the bag, a prototype Vokey Design wedge holds a special place in the setup. .
Check out the Q&A below and get to know a little more about Marc.
Team Titleist (TT): How did you get started in golf? Who introduced you to the game?
Marc S. (MS): As a very little boy until I was about 10 years old, we used to go to my Grandpa’s house and see a black staff bag full of sparkling clubs. Looking at those clubs in the corner every Sunday after church definitely sparked by interest in the game and it evolved from there.
TT: How do you mark your Titleist?
MS: #12 was my hockey number throughout my playing days in northwest Minnesota and Schultzy is typically what all my buddies call me.
TT: What’s your favorite Titleist club in your bag?
MS: After meeting Dave Neville and Ryan Crysler at my first Team Titleist event at the Austin Golf Club in Austin, TX, I bought my 56 degree 2011 prototype Vokey Design 56 TK wedge. From 100 yards, this club is a perfect fit.
TT: How often are you thinking about your golf game and getting better? What are you currently working on?
MS: There isn’t a day that goes by when I am not playing a round somewhere in my head. Not only is golf my passion, but therapeutic as well. I am currently working on my putting alignment, path, stroke, and speed. Easier said than done.
TT: Can you recall the best shot you’ve ever hit?
MS: I have been lucky enough to have two holes in one, but my first was on May 31st, 2009. This happened to be my last official day on Active Duty in the Army after 22 years. It was a 155 yard par three with a 7-iron. I hit a baby draw into the front pin, watched it land on the green, and followed the ball as it spun and rolled into the hole. Having played golf for so long it was definitely a surreal feeling.
TT: What’s the best piece of golf advice you have ever received?
MS: The best piece of advice that I have received is “not to let one bad hole define my round”
