What Our Guest Talked About

In this interesting episode, Charlie talks about each of his five careers, how he seamlessly transitioned from one to the next, and how and what he learned from one career to apply it to the next.

Charlie really enjoyed his time at the LPGA because he decided at age sixty-five after living with a wife for decades and raising two daughters that he was truly a gray-haired feminist.

Charlie believes that the game of golf needs to provide more opportunities for access for all demographics.

Words of Wisdom

Charlie has some words of wisdom for our listeners: 1) Never forget where you came from. 2) Always know what you don’t know. 3) Make everything you do about the people around you and those whose lives you can impact.
