We're back! And yes, it's been a while -- from holiday in idyllic Gozo (with poor WiFi and bad cell service, which was bliss after the initial shock that lasted like 5-6 days of not being able to access all the information about the horrible stuff happening all over the world) to a wedding in Seattle, along with some other business TBD.
In this episode, I chat with self-described journeyman and Latin American Tour pro Paul Apyan, who has also become a good friend and someone I speak with regularly about (gasp!) politics. I first "met" shortly after he and a friend started the Twitter account @LifeontheMiniTours (formerly known as "Mini Tour Problems") five or six years ago.
Paul provides great insight into tour life as experienced by the majority of professional golfers. I'd call it "how the other half lives," but that's not entirely accurate because it's more like "how the other 99% of tour pros live."
Mini Tour life is the opposite of glamorous and there are no private jets, nor wheelbarrows with millions of dollars at the end of the season, but hopefully, there will be some day soon. Instead, Paul has a very busy fall/winter ahead of him between the multiple stages of Web.com Tour Q-school, and a couple more events left on the Latin American Tour schedule to play. #chasingthedream
