My name is Kevin Vedder, and I'm from Westfield, NJ. I'm an avid golfer, though the bulk of my golf for the year now occurs during an annual trip with college buddies. I'm hopeful memories of the nine years I spent in my youth as a caddie will return to spur me on to walk 100 holes. I've been married to my wonderful wife, Suzanne, for 16 years, and am the proud father of a daughter and twin sons. I'm an active dad, and a board member of a trust that provides a scholarship to a Northwestern University journalism student. I support Els for Autism, and am doing the 100 Hole Hike in honor of my five-year-old son, Seamus, who has autism. While autism can be very difficult to deal with at times, Suzanne and I are getting better at addressing the daily challenges it brings our little guy.

I am the golf professional at Laurel View Country Club in Hamden, CT. I grew up in Hamden and now live here with my wife Danyel and dog, Jackson. Having worked in the golf industry for the past 17 years I have had the opportunity to teach numerous people how to play. The most rewarding part of teaching is when I have the opportunity to give lessons to children who are excited to learn the game.
