My guest on this week's episode is Michael Beard, Head Coach of the Pepperdine Men's Golf Team. He's a former player at Pepperdine that came back to his alma mater and this year was named the National Coach of the Year award. We spoke about Pepperdine quite a bit, hit on several topics involving the team, but if the name Beard rings a bell....yes, his father Frank Beard played on tour, won 11 times and played on the Champions Tour during that amazing era in the 90's when Jack, Trevino and Palmer will still the kings. Had to talk about that as well!
