Trying to summarize who Jeff is, where he’s been and what he’s done in his action-packed life is a daunting task; maybe akin to shooting out of a sand trap with only a putter? Anyway, he’s been an FM and AM radio DJ, national political campaigner, golf club manager, driving range operator, golf pro, and inventor. Oh, and he’s a surfer, singer, and guitarist too. The Yasugoken Country Club, home to one of Kyushu’s top five courses, has brought him over to make the club one of the nation’s top five. “It’s a beautiful and challenging course with huge greens; golfers from anywhere in the world would love it. I’m here to Westernize it just a bit and add some fun!” Jeff is a great golfing instructor, and his English is pera-pera, so give him a call at the Yasukogen C.C. on (0946) 42-2211.
