Every career path is not a straight line. Sometimes, a reroute is necessary and can be a positive thing.
Davyon Collins, a Houston native, was chosen last year to participate in a PGA WORKS Fellowship at the Colorado PGA Section. He has traded his passion for basketball, which brought him his first few job, to take up a position in the Section, where he hopes to change how people think about golf.
“My heart’s in growing the game and getting it into the hands of people who have never played,” Collins said to the Castle Rock News Press In a recent interview. “For me, it’s really important to get them in the game so they can teach their children and so on and so on, and also to break the ‘This is a 45-year-old white man’s sport’ stereotype.”
He’ll be at Augusta National Golf Club, where he will be helping to administer the Drive, Chip and Putt National Finals on Sunday, April 2.
Talk about a change of scenery. Collins is ready for it and willing to change the game.
