Joey has been around the game of golf since he was born. His Dad Joe, has been a Professional Golf Instructor for over 20 years, so it was fate for Joey to have a plastic club in his hand as soon as he could walk. His Dad would watch him swing at ping pong balls in the living room and in the yard, and by the age of 2 he was hitting at the range with his Dad & Grandpa. Joey has a drive to win every time he tees it up, and has won many tournaments throughout his junior career. His favorite moment so far was qualifying to play in the 2014 MN State Open. He loved the opportunity to play with adult Professional Golfers & Amateurs at the age of 15.

*MN JR. PGA Fall Champions Showdown, Ages 13-18

Bobby started swinging a club at the age of 1. At the age of 3 he watched his brother play in his first U.S. Kids Tournament which ignited Bobby's fire to compete. The following year at age 4, he played in his first U.S. Kids Golf Tournament and he never looked back. When Bobby was 7 years old he won 7 tournaments and the next year at age 8 he won 7 more in a row.! At age 12 Bobby qualified & played in the 2013 Callaway Junior World Championship in San Diego. Last season, Bobby won 5 events, including the Fall Champions Showdown. He shot 72 at the TPC Twin Cities (Home of Champions Tour 3M Championship) and 75 at North Oaks Country Club. It was a great way to end the season.
Joey and Bobby are excited for the 2015 golf season. Every year as they get older, the cost to practice & compete in bigger tournaments becomes more expensive especially with two golfers.
