My guest on this very special episode is John Wade, the director of golf at Ocean Forest Golf Club...the site of the Jones Cup Invitational. How does John get bitten by the golf bug, then find a way to turn it into his profession, and then end up as the tournament director of one of the elite national invitationals? How does that happen? Well.....it's a great story, we will dig into all of the details and we will learn about Ocean Forest Golf Club, some Jones Cup history, and how it relates to the Walker Cup!
