THE TEE SHEET MISSION
The goal of TheTeeSheet it to be your main source for golf commentary, opinion, humor, news and connection to social culture.
For us golf fans, keeping up to date on golf ideas, commentary and opinion has several challenges: it is not consistent; it is all over the place and it tends to be aimed at either hardcore golf fans or tends to be too simplistic for even the average golf fan. Plus, a lot of it is just not that fun to read. Most commentary out there, both in print and other media, is insular to the golf world. The goal of TheTeeSheet it to bring golf out of this blinkered world to the broader world of sports, entertainment, society and popular culture. This is what golf is to most of us. We come from the perspective of the golf fan but also a fan of all sports and popular culture in general.
I read almost everything out there so I hope to bring to you (via links) the more interesting columns and views out there.
More mportantly, TheTeeSheet provides original content. While being accurate and well researched, TheTeeSheet aims to bring some fun to golf commentary.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR & FOUNDER
I'm a lifetime hacker. It is no conincidence we offer no swing tips or product reviews. But I love golf.
I first started golfing in elementary school riding a bike with my bag balanced on the handle bars to the two local courses. My options were limited growing up in Scarborough, Ontario (a suburb of Toronto). The closest course was not accessible to me: Scarboro Golf & Country Club - the only A.W. Tillinghast course in Canada and host of four Canadian Opens. Little did I know that 24 years later, I would be fortunate enough to join Scarboro (although I had not improved much in the intervening years!) One of the regrets to leaving Toronto for New York in 2008 was leaving Scarboro behind - an amazing golf course.
I attended Cornell University and graduated with two majors: American History and Neurobiology & Behaviour. Naturally, I guided that diverse education to its natural destination: a career in tax law by attending the University of Western Ontario. I practiced tax law at one of Canada's largest law firms for over 8 years and then moved to one of the big four accounting firms to continue my career. In 2008, I decided on a complete career change was in order and moved to New York City to work on Wall St. for several years in the algorithmic trading and equity options trading business.
Ultimately all of this has led to the opportunity to pursue my true passion of writing about golf, media and modern popular culture: TheTeeSheet.com was born. I've been a lifetime observer of golf, sports and popular culture and this forum has provided the opportunity. Having finally abandoned my dream of being the starting goalie for the Toronto Maple Leafs, this is the next best thing.
Of course the best part of moving to New York was meeting my beautiful wife and we currently live north of the city in the Hudson Valley. I am learning and laughing everyday raising our infant son.
