Dreams really do come true! When I was 12 years old, I was watching TV when @tigerwoods juggling commercial played. I remember grabbing my ball and wedge to run outside and try it myself. Not only has he always been my inspiration to play golf but also one of the biggest reason why I do what I do today. Thank you @tgrliveevents for the amazing weekend at #tigerjam ??
