Hey everyone, I’m Zach!

I’m a golf professional who both teaches and plays tournament golf competitively.

What’s your life motto?

Live every day with an attitude of mindfulness, gratitude, and positivity.

Tell us a story about when a stranger showed you kindness:

On October 1st, 2017 I was involved in the horrible tragedy that took place in Las Vegas. I was shot and injured pretty severely that night.  In the heat of the fear and chaos, I had several amazing and selfless individuals who were complete strangers risk their own lives to get me out of there and save mine. I was extremely fortunate that night and thanks to the incredible kindness of many selfless strangers I am able to continue on with my story and hope to be able to spread some of the kindness I was shown.  

How do you try to bring more kindness into the world?

As a golf professional I’m in the very privileged position to be able to share my passion for an incredible game which has given me so much with many others who I teach and interact with on a daily basis.  The game of golf embodies so many fantastic ideals including physical and mental wellness, social connectivity, integrity, and balance.  Having the opportunity to pass some of these things along and witness people’s enjoyment is incredible.  Golf has given me a second family of sorts, allowing me to develop many meaningful connections and relationships.
