Traveling the world watching sports is my passion. It all started when my parents took me to Europe when I was less than a year old. A few short months later, my dad got me a plastic set of golf clubs and my career in golf was born. Needless to say, I didn’t make it on to “The Mike Douglas Show” like Tiger Woods but my interest in golf has always been a big part of my life.

Growing up I was so fortunate to visit sports capitals like St Andrews, Scotland (Golf), Milan, Italy (football) and Monte Carlo, Monaco (Formula 1). I’m so grateful for my experiences like walking the Old Course and attending Premier League soccer matches at such a young age. I knew back then that sports was going to have a great impact on my life.

Having spent 10 years in the golf travel industry and traveling the globe, I’ve seen how sports impacts people across every culture. As Americans, I think we some times forget there are people at baseball games in Tokyo or Irish Hurling games in Dublin fanatically cheering on their teams. Don’t get me wrong, I like watching the Dallas Cowboy’s cheerleaders and tailgating just like the next guy, but I find the “world” of sports fascinating.

I believe sports and food are the best way to immerse yourself into a culture when traveling. Attending the Octoberfest before a Bayern Munich football match, drinking in the “Bricklayer Pub” before a Tottenham game, sipping on champagne at the Monaco Grand Prix, or cheering on Team USA at the Ryder Cup are all amazing experiences. They allow you to meet people from many different backgrounds while having loads of fun!

My goal is to share a creative and entertaining perspective to sports travel. I hope you see you on a fairway, at the pitch or near a race track some time soon. Enjoy!
