    Some of you may remember a few discussions/posts here about Bob Beach, PGA golf professional at the Braintree Municipal Golf Course in MA.  In 2013 Bob was awarded the 2013 Patriot Award from the PGA of America among many other distinguished awards as he's dedicated his life to helping others enjoy the game of golf.  Next month, Bob will officially retire on June 16th after 43 years in the golf business.  Below is a message Bob wrote to his friends at Titleist and with his permission I'm sharing it.

    Thank you Titleist for your Generosity and Support

    I will be retiring from my job as the PGA golf professional at the Braintree Municipal Golf Course on June 16th after 43 years in the golf business. I entered the golf business in 1976 after caddying at Oakley Country Club in Watertown, MA from 1965 to 1975. I fondly remember buying a sleeve of Titleist Club Specials in Paul Donahue’s pro shop and teeing it up with the other caddies on Mondays at Oakley CC.

    I enjoyed my ten years of caddying so much, that after graduating from Norwich University in 1975, I decided to enter the golf business to give back to the game I love. I became the assistant golf professional at Braintree Municipal in 1976. I was an assistant golf professional for fifteen years at Braintree Municipal GC and Newton Commonwealth GC. My friends at Titleist always made sure that I had a supply of new Titleist golf balls to play every season. I can tell you their generosity was much appreciated. When I became the head golf professional at Braintree Municipal in 1990, it was an easy decision on what golf ball I would sock in my pro shop. Thank you Titleist for your generosity and support!

    Congratulations to Bob on a long career of giving and caring. Hopefully this is just an opportunity for another PGA member to carry on the tradition. that Bob no longer has the responsibility of the course, I'm sure one day he will be tired of sitting and will have the chance to continue doing clinics at his own leisure.

    I happen to live in Braintree and have witnessed Bob in his "element". His work over the years with the handicapped and disabled has rightly earned him many plaudits from the community.
    A few years ago my two sons and I donated a couple of sets of clubs to Bob's programs and his gratitude knew no bounds.
    Congratulations on an outstanding career Bob!

  12. Congratulations, Bob, and thanks for everything you've done to make the game better! You've set the bar extremely high.

    We can't thank you enough for all you've done to support Titleist over the course of your career and, personally, I can't thank you enough for your friendship and the generous help you've always extended to me.

    Wishing you all the best and hope to see you soon!

  13. Even in the midst of getting ready to retire, Bob still found the time to help one of our Titleist member's daughters in Dallas who needed some adaptive clubs.

    He has been an inspiration and a very special member of the PGA of America!
