The Most Engaging Golf Story You'll Read

“As you walk down the fairway of life you must smell the roses, for you only get to play one round.” -Ben Hogan

On the eve of his biggest event of the year on the Golfweek Amateur Tour, David Greeno truly channeled the words of Ben Hogan in successfully executing his greatest decision ever on a golf course—getting engaged to his girlfriend Jewel and effectively combining the elements of his life that he loves the most. Smiling, David reflected on this magical moment at The Alpine Course at Boyne Mountain: “The setting was perfect. Jewel is my #1 fan. She always comes and watches my tournaments when she can. The moment was perfect with friends, family (my mom) as witnesses, and it went off very well. Couldn’t have picked a better place to do it. She was blown away by the whole thing.”

… and because you’re all golf geeks, we should probably share an update on how David did in the tournament. Still smiling, David captured his performance beautifully: “To be honest, I didn’t have the greatest weekend on the course. But I told the three guys in my group on the 1st tee on Saturday about the engagement, and then I said, ‘have fun, play well and no matter how I play over the weekend, I’ve already won.’ They thought that was awesome.”

And so do we.
