[Josh] I've been playing golf my entire life,
00:03
you know a young kid, and thought to myself
00:06
what's the craziest thing I can do with a golf club?
00:09
Alright, watch and learn boys.
00:09
[Golfer] Tee it up, buddy.
00:13
[Josh] That little friendly competition has been
00:16
a huge part of where I am today.
00:23
That feeling you get when you're working on a trick shot
00:26
for a long time and you finally achieve it,
00:28
I mean I don't think there's a better feeling in the world.
00:33
We always say happy birthday, or things like that.
00:36
But if you're celebrating everyday moments,
00:38
I think that's really a big part of friendship.
00:41
If I'm able to celebrate with them and mark the moment
00:44
with them, even when we play golf together and someone
00:46
hits a really great shot we'll stop at the bar
00:48
and talk about it and have some drinks.
00:51
I would not be where I'm at today without these guys,
00:54
for sure.
