Joe Groham talked about the great work his foundation is doing to help wounded veterans learn or re-learn the game of golf. He shared stories of veterans who said they were about to "eat a bullet" before attending one of his clinics and how golf saved their lives. For years Joe was the Head Golf Pro at the Navy Golf Course in Seal Beach, California where Earl and Tiger Woods were members. Joe talked about how 13 year old Tiger learned his incredible focus while Earl would make noise during his swing. He also talked about the racism Tiger dealt with while they were members there, including the pro shop not wanting to display his US Amateur trophy. Hear all that and more on this segment of Next on the Tee Golf Podcast.
