Bobby Weed, ASGCA (Bobby Weed Golf Design) sat down with Matt Ginella of Golf Channel’s “Morning Drive” at the PGA Show, to discuss his new project with basketball legend Michael Jordan. He also told the inspiring story of his daughter and her ongoing battle with autism.
The new course will be a private, 18-hole facility in Hope Sound, Florida. The unique design pattern will give golfers the option to play nine-hole loops that include 1-4 and 14-18, or 10-13 and 5-9, as well as the standard 1-9, and 10-18.
Weed also spoke of his 19-year-old daughter. Thanks to technological advances and an iPad, he can now “hear” his daughter speak to him, something that he could not have imagined even two years ago.
Weed also heads HEAL (Helping Enrich Autistic Lives), a non-profit organization that has distributed more than $2 million over the past decade and more than 300 iPads to families with children fighting autism.
