Growing up in tiny Sundown, Texas, opera singer Eric Barry would find solace toward the end of a hard day by hitting golf balls from his front lawn to the first hole of the golf course across the street.
“And I’d take my putter and an 8 iron, and I’d play holes 2, 3, 4 and 5, and I’d walk back home,” Barry said.
At 33, Barry brings the same approach to golf as he does to singing. And he recently was rewarded for that connection, being chosen by Mizuno to be part of Team JPX, a 12-person roster of “game-improvement” amateurs to be featured in its Play Famously marketing campaign. MORE
