When he was nine years old Jon Sherman found a set of old golf clubs in his grandmother’s garage. He walked across the street to an abandoned schoolyard, and his passion for the game was born. Since then, he has spent the last 20 years practicing, learning, and competing in the game he loves.

At the age of 31 he reached his life-long dream of becoming a scratch golfer.
