Episode 025: Todd Barranger: Mentored by a golf icon, how to manage a golf course, and surviving cancer.
Todd Barranger (FB: @tbarranger, T: @toddbarranger) was a professional golfer that played on the PGA Tour, Korn Ferry Tour and Asian Tours. He was the Asian Tours Thailand Open (later called the Johnnie Walker Open) and the Korn Ferry Tours Dayton Open. He played on the PGA Tour 1994-1995, 2002-2003. In his second year on the PGA Tour he was diagnosed with testicular cancer that sidetracked his playing for a number of years but culminated in his beating the dreaded disease not once but twice! His return to competitive golf was in 2000 where he earned membership to the Korn Ferry Tour (then called the Buy.com and Nationwide Tour) and he earned a return trip to the PGA Tour by coming in the Top 15 on the Korn Ferry money list.
Upon retiring from competitive golf, Todd returned to the business side of golf and is currently a partner of a group that is acquiring golf courses that have seen better days and turning them around in the Las Cruces area of New Mexico. At present they manage three facilities and he is enjoying his new position and life.
