“I remember the first time I actually got a golf club put in my hand, was Tiger Woods putting it in my hands up there at Hiawatha Golf Course,” Fitzgerald explained. “He was up there for the first tee program and that was kind of like when I really kind of fell in love with the game.”
“So I would watch all the time, watch the Masters every April with my dad, get up super early to watch the British Open with my dad. We would experience golf, but I never really wanted to play until my boy ‘Dre (Andre Roberts). When I started playing, I hit a whole bunch of really poor shots, but then I hit like two or three and was like ‘man, that’s really nice.’ There’s nothing like a well-compressed golf ball going in the direction that you want it to go.”
