Dave is a longtime golf writer, who was the managing editor at a regional monthly golf magazine for 11 years before becoming editor and feature writer at eSouthernGOLF six years ago.
He also contributes stories to Golf Coast Magazine, GolfTrips, GoGolfandTravel, Traveling Golfer Canada, Ohio Golf Journal and the IAGTO. Additionally, he’s a staff writer for Georgia Golf Trail.
Dave’s insight and unique perspective allows him to create interesting articles. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
David a/k/a “The Golfin’ Guy” grew up in Southwestern Ontario, Canada, where it was assumed he would play hockey. Beginning at the age of 3 and continuing into his late 30’s, he did just that. However, after one too many pucks to the head, he realized that golf was a lot easier on the body and took the game up.
Since that time, golf has become his passion. From 2003 until 2009, David ran the sales and marketing department of TravelGolf Media and took his team to over $1M in annual advertising revenue. While at TravelGolf, an editor told him he had a flair for writing and the lightbulb went on. He started writing articles about anything golf related: courses, resorts, shoes, apparel, equipment and training aids and sending them to websites and magazines. At first, his articles were picked up by a few golf websites and magazines, but the number steadily grew – enough that he could call it a career.
Most days he’s on a course somewhere, either working or playing. Occasionally you’ll find him on the practice range reinforcing bad habits. David plays to a 10 handicap – unless there is money involved in which case it goes considerably higher. Home is Crossville, Tennessee and his email is email@example.com.
