John Strege summarizes former PGA of America president Ted Bishop's first blog post since losing his job over a Tweet and Facebook posting.
And in the ultimate kumbaya moment, Bishop says he's received strong support from former USGA President and anchored-putter rival Glen Nager, who walked away from all future USGA activities after attempting to change how that organization approaches its affairs.
Bishop credits a former adversary, former USGA president Glen Nager, who “helped me turn the corner and start the rest of my life,” he wrote. Nager advised him to “look forward,” “to “appreciate my wonderful family,” and “to enjoy going to work every day at my golf course.”
Nager further told him, “those who are fearful of mistakes don’t take the opportunity to make change. You should be proud of what you accomplished and the lives that you impacted. You have a forum in your writing and I encourage you to stay public and use it for the betterment of everyone who enjoys golf.”
