What is the best thing to come out of the 2020 pandemic?
To say this was a difficult year is of course an understatement. However, the challenges that we faced as golf professionals allowed us to create and innovate in order to make all of our operations run as normal as possible. After a year of dealing with those obstacles, I’m confident that every part of our business will be fully prepared moving into 2021.
What are you most looking forward to in 2021?
Like most people, I’m looking forward to the possibility of returning to pre-2020 conditions across every facet of life. While that is certainly going to take more time, at least there is a light at the end of the tunnel and it doesn’t feel like it’s a train this time.
Comments or Thoughts
It is an honor to win this award considering the amount of qualified assistant golf professionals in the state. I want to thank my family for their tremendous support as well as the efforts of my co-workers that help make Tuckaway run consistently every day.
