Shown here with his grand-sons, David Surplis started playing golf when he was 15 years old, in 1956. As I write this, he now has 65 years of golf under his belt! He is a member at The Toronto Hunt, and when he is not golfing, he loves to write and listen to opera.
FAVOURITE GOLF COURSE(S):
Ardglass (N. Ireland) and
Victoria Golf Club (Victoria, BC).
BEST GOLF MOMENT EVER:
When playing in a tournament at Rosses Point golf club in Ireland. We were caught in pouring rain from the tail end of a hurricane. There were three foursomes on a par three. I took out my driver, aimed 90 degrees from the flag, hit the ball as hard as I could and it stopped 5 feet from the hole. Eleven other golfers clapped and cheered like I had just won the Open Championship!
GOLF COURSE ON BUCKET LIST:
Royal County Down and Old St. Andrews.
Fred Couples for his relaxed approach to the game.
YOGA FOR GOLFERS™
David has a 30-minute YFG routine that he has followed for years! It includes cat-cow, lunges, window washer, alligator twist, rest and meditation.
