    Amazing. You certainly don’t seem like the laid back Kirk I knew in high school anymore. Looks like you’ve kicked some pretty good butt since then. Glad to see you’re still playing golf at a high level too!

  2. Kirk, Wow! You were always an amazing guy back in high school. My first real date. You continue to be and do amazing things! Congrats on Leadville and all your other pursuits! Take care and God bless, Jen (aka Griff)

    How did you keep that from stunting your growth?

      Wow. I love academics. But the truth is that without Dr. Cadenhead and a few other key professors, the PGA TOUR Network would not exist today (and contrary to the cocktail scene, there are over a million wealthy, influential fans that listen – yes, disturbingly awesome). But, yes, a piece of paper can blind one from reality and plain ole hard work and boot strapping. Touché.
