Saturday, 5:20 am. It was a cold and foggy morning in Pacific Palisades. The only lights you could see were coming from my Riviera issued golf cart. The deer at this time were scurrying back into their homes on the outskirts of the course. The work day had only just begun.

The range had to be up and running by six, range balls packed, and the members happy. If the range was stocked, I worked in the bag room, or cleaned up brush around the course. In between work, I snuck a look at the pictures inside the clubhouse and learned a lot about the history of the course, and it’s champions - Hogan, Mangrum, Pavin, Sutton, Elkington, and many more. The job was certainly tedious at times, but I’ve never regretted it. The Head Pro at Riviera, Todd Yoshitake, gave me a chance to work there after calling several days in a row about the position.
