King City Golf Course
STORYTIME WITH Matthew
THE 8 QUESTION GAUNTLET
Who are you & what describes you the best?
I am budhitsthegreen. You know how they say the grass is greener on the other side? I'm on that other side, even in difficult situations you have to make the best of every moment. Just like in golf, we have ups and downs. This game of life has its ups and downs. I just choose to try and stay as positive as I can be and maybe people around can feel that same energy when they are around me.
Why do you play golf? What does golf mean to you?
I love this game. The atmosphere, the people you get to meet, or the old family/friends you try to bring back to the game to show them why they started golfing in the first place. IT'S FUN!
Golf to me means community, bringing people together just to get out and enjoy a day.
When you play golf, what’s most important for you?
I'm all about the total experience. From rocking the right outfit that's going to make me feel like a pro, to the fun part of always welcoming old and new friends to the course. We are all different and all have a story. I enjoy sitting back and watching the game flow.
What is special about ODIN?
COMMUNITY! Throughout the website I came across that word many times. I had the pleasure of meeting Jordan at the ODIN Social Club outing at Deep Cliff and as soon as I walked up to the gathering area I was greeted with open arms and a smile from Jordan. He made me feel that community involved with the brand. I'm all for that.
How is the golf scene changing? Where do you see golf in 10 years?
The golf scene is growing fast. A lot of the big golf companies have a good hold on the game, but I see and am noticing some very strong competition coming for those spots. It's finally a game that feels like everybody can enjoy. I see myself putting on tournaments and events to get more friends together and hopefully bring more newcomers out to play by showing them we just go out and have fun.
Do you play music on the course? What's your go-to song?
Yes, music is the most high. I don't have a go-to song. I play anything from 50's rock n roll to Mac Dre. It's whatever mood the golf course/days brings.
What's your favorite golf course?
Pacific Grove Golf Links.
What is your favorite golf tournament format?
FUN! Just have everybody go out and play their best all while having fun.
You've been invited to play at Augusta. You can bring 3 other people of your choice: 1 PGA player, 1 friend/family member and 1 famous person. Who are they?
My girlfriend Aly, Phil Mickleson and probably Michael Pena.
