  • I played my first full round of golf when I was around 30 years old on a trip to Cape Cod.  I think it was at the Ocean Edge Golf Club.  Some friends and I used to rent a house there for a week in the summer.  I played a lot of tennis back then but not much golf.  I did not get serious about golf until a few years later.
  • My favorite local golf course has to be Memorial since I live fairly close to the course.  It is usually in good shape and reasonably priced.
  • My bucket list courses would have to be Pebble Beach on the West Coast or Pinehurst no #2 on the East Coast.
  • Favorite golfer from the old stock would be Fred Couples (U of H) and from the new stock would be Jordan Spieth.
  • Personal best score was 75 at Memorial a few years ago.

  • Bio: Harshal picked up golf because of his buddy Jeet, who is a huge golf nut. However, Harshal has since claimed the title as the bigger golf nut.  At 5' 10", 160 lbs., Harshal has balls of steel and a heart made of cotton candy. A golf course is Harshal's happy place, don't mess with it!

  • Quick bio: I picked up the game of golf very late in my mid-twenties. I was mainly into baseball and basketball growing up. But in 2003 I tore my ACL and couldn't play baseball or basketball for a while. A friend introduced me to the game of golf as I was recovering from surgery and since 2006 I have been obsessed with the game. Golf has taught me some life lessons along the way and I strive to make myself a better player with every round I play. I am happy to have created GBT which has turned into a golf fraternity.

  • Handicap: 18
  • Quick bio: On a family reunion trip to Corpus Christi in 2012, some of my Brother In Law's went to play golf (I tagged along with them to ride the cart and enjoy the ocean views). One of the players couldn't make it and I was unexpectedly pushed into taking his spot and play. Obviously everyone laughed when I swung and missed the ball multiple times during that round, but I hit a couple of good shots that round and was hooked ever since. Now I'm a better player than most people who played that day!
