Honda Classic Pro-Am Experience w/Ernie Els

Ed Holofcener and Ernie Els
Ed Holofcener and Greg Norman
Our very own President, Ed Holofcener, just had an amazing golfing experience this past week that was incredibly memorable.  Here’s a short description of his experience:

"The Honda Classic Pro-Am.  We had a fantastic day and being teamed up with Ernie Els could not have been any better - he was an excellent playing partner. There's a reason they call him “The Big Easy”.   He was engaging with us all day and was always there for a fist bump after a great shot or clutch putt.  Teeing off on the 1st tee was pretty nerve-racking as there were a few hundred people watching.  Luckily, I had a really nice drive and that settled me down for the rest of the day.

Ed Holofcener and Ricke Fowler
We played very well as a team and we were actually the leaders in the clubhouse when we finished and for most of the afternoon. However, at the end of the day, the last two groups somehow nudged past us - so we finished a solid 3rd out of a total of 50 teams. I’ll take that!

Rickie Fowler's group was right behind us and Greg Norman and his celebrity group with Kenny G and Shane Battier and Joe Mauer were right behind them.

One of the best, most memorable days of my golfing life."
