Our guest this week is Duke Butler IV from Jacksonville, Florida. Duke grew up in Houston, TX but soon found his way to the University of Florida and played collegiate golf with the likes of Matt Every and Camilo Villegas. He participated in several USGA events and shared some great stories about those experiences. He also has some experience working behind the scenes on some PGA and Web.com events...so he has some insight on how these tournaments function and all of the hard work necessary to have them come off flawlessly.
