What was your motivation to become a PGA professional?

My motivation was the love for the game and desire to work in a profession that allows me to have a positive influence in so many peoples lives.

How are you growing the game of golf?

I work hard to inspire the next generation of golfers through a comprehensive junior golf program.  

I also try and make the game fun and inviting for everyone from beginners to the elderly that want to keep enjoying the game.

What was your greatest moment in golf?

I’ve won a few Pro-Pro team events and just missed qualifying for a Nationwide Tour Event.  

I am most proud of the success of two of my junior players that won state high school titles.

Who had had the greatest impact on your career?

I  have been fortunate to work under several great mentors and I learned a lot from PGA Professionals:  Mike Malone, Jeff Jackson and Mike Schultz.

Besides golf, what else do you enjoy?

I enjoy reading, learning, playing hockey, working outdoors and spending time with my family.

If you could play any course in the world, which one would it be and who would complete your foursome?

Augusta National of course….with my Mother (sentimental), Dad, Arnold Palmer and anyone else who was lucky enough for me to ask them to join us.

Thanks Peter for all you’ve done for the Minnesota PGA Section over the years.
