    • Got to spend a couple of hours today with Mike Bender @mikebendergolf.  Someone who knows his craft and is able to help people from all over the world.  He was such a gentleman and such a teacher.  Aka.. Coach Wooden style.  Don’t know when I will be back to Florida, but when I do, I hope to visit his academy again.  #mikebender #mikebendergolf #lessoninhumility #agoodwalkspoiled #champions #pga #lpga #pgatour #lpgatour #heavenly #coachwooden #coaching #instruction #florida Heading home for L.A. in the morning! #wednesdaywisdom
