Dave Cooper is a golfer to the bone.
He coaches the Hubbard High School team and he has been a staple at more Greatest events than we can count.
He just signed up for our inaugural event in Washington, DC on Oct. 17-18 — the GolfLeagueSite Greatest Golfer championship.
Of his photo he submitted, he said: “Three of the guys in this photo, Ron Polinsky,left, Mark Standohar, second left, and Keith Schubert, right, have won Greatest Golfer titles in their respective flights and I have bested them on many occasions. Hopefully one of these days, I have a break-thru moment. The excitement for me is now I get another chance this year."
To him, it’s an event he put on his calendar early. Here are his thoughts:
• Why tournament golf?
I really like to challenge myself, and golf offers a challenge with every swing. In a tournament, that challenge carries a little more pressure.
• Best golf moment?
I've had four hole-in-ones
• Worst golf moment?
At last year’s Greatest Golfer tournament, I shot +3 for two days and failed to make Sunday at The Lake Club.
• My walk-up song
It could be any progressive rock from the late ‘60s thru the ‘70s. Who doesn't like a little Led Zeppelin?
• What chore will be undone while playing Greatest?
I've been retired for four years, so there are no longer any vital chores that I would pass up a round of golf for.
