I DID IT!!!!

JRDotel

Hey TT family!

Well, let me start by saying, I DID IT!!!

To say that golf helped me graduate would be an understatement. When I first picked up the game, I was working at a fast food joint, broke, and unhappy. 5 years later, I graduated at age 29, bought my dream golf set, and already have a job a few days after I graduated in Nashville, TN. I am happy now.

When returning back to college, I had a dream that I would be an art teacher, and get to play golf all summer long. Now that I'm moving to Nashvegas, I will have the opportunity to play some awesome courses. Now my next step is to meet a lady golfer who's as golf crazed as I am, lol.

Feels great to share this accomplishment with a group of guys/gals that understand our love for the game. Most of the artsy-fartsy crew from Tennessee Tech would give me weird looks when I mentioned I was an avid golfer, but I don't care. The people I have met, and the connections established in my golfing life has changed me as a person.

Feels great to say I am a first-generation college grad in my household :)

Here's to many more!!

P.S. Couldn't resist sharing some grad pics. Thought you all would get a kick with my cap. Going to buy a couple dozens with my new lucky number "17" :) Thanks for your time, crew.

    Congratulations! I love the cap and I think some #17 play number golf balls are a perfect way to celebrate.

    I agree, Abby :) I'll make sure to throw in the TT logo on it. So glad to begin my career, and I'm sure to buy a 917 D3 as a little self gift, lol.

    First, congratulations on being the first-generation grad. That is an awesome accomplishment and one that has set a standard. I think that it is great that golf was the foundation for you graduating and pointed you in the right direction. Being from east Tennessee (but now live in South Carolina), I am very proud of my fellow Tennessean. It just goes to show that "nothing happens in life, unless you make it happen". Best of luck in life and your golf game. Cool mortar board. Chuck
