Today was our Annual Meeting for the Northern Tx PGA. It happened to be the 50th year, which makes 26 for me in the NTPGA.
The morning was filled with speakers:
Sandy Cross - Senior Director, Diversity & Inclusion, PGA of America
Darrell Crall - COO, PGA of America
Jon Drago - Tournament Director, AT&T Byron Nelson
Shane Robichaud - Vice President, Golf Design, Beau Welling Design.
All were very interesting with their subject. Darrell shared a very motivating video from the 2016 Ryder Cup at Hazeltine CC in Minnesota.
But, David Brown the former Chief for the Dallas Police Department stole the show. He was fascinating to listen to. His story included growing up in South Dallas, heading off to college at U. of Texas and then leaving early to join the Dallas Police Department. Brown recounted the tragedy of July 6, 2016 in Dallas when 5 Dallas police officers were slain during what was supposed to be a peaceful march. He's a man who lives by some very basic values that we should all follow. One being don't judge based on what you see. Dive deeper and get to know what you're ready to judge.
I always enjoy attending the PGA seminars. You never stop learning. There's so much information that can continue to make you better at your chosen profession. I get so much out of hearing other successful professionals stories. If nothing else it motivates you to be better at your chosen profession.
