Eric Sedransk is a former Wall Street Investment Banker turned certified golf junkie. After picking up the game in his early teenage years, Eric has been unable to shake the bug. With the assistance of social media, Eric has capitalized on his network to document a golfing journey that we can all be jealous of. He travels across the country playing some of the finest golf courses known to man. Some you'll know, others you won't, but each has a great story. You won't want to miss Eric's POV on golf's greatest loops! *Side note: I apologize for the audio quality. After 17 episodes of doing this in my house, I still haven't perfected it. Having a 2 year old daughter who loves musicals and dancing doesn't help either. For example, this episode was recorded in my 100* Kansas garage. It was the only quiet place. That explains why my computer sounds like it was about to take off. In case you were wondering. Regardless, thank you as always! #LOWSIDE
