When I'm not out honing my not-so-fine (and perhaps un-honeable!?) golf game, I run a management consulting firm, RealFoundations, that helps Real Estate companies run better. I played my first round of golf 12 years ago at the Shelter Island Country Club -- more commonly known around the island as 'Goat Hill'. It's a 9-hole public course with some lovely views of Peconic Bay, some holes that stretch the boundaries of 'quirk' and conditioning that only a mother could love. Since them I've been fortunate to play lots of interesting courses with lots of interesting people. ALTERNATE SHOT PARTNER: Carter Via

Made it to 100 with a great group of golfers -- including Stephenie Harris who I believe was the first woman to complete the HHH! -- at Stonewall Golf Club. It took 15 hours (I'm old!).
