for me it has been the group "MOBZ" (in mobile, al), papa smurff (steve), mikey P, and my sons( drew, mike, & richie ) who challange me week in and week out to get better. the best part is these guys have NO, NONE. NOT ONE SINGLE OUNCE OF KINDNESS IN THEM (my sons esp.), and i love it.... smack a tree i'm told i throwing termites all day, miss a 30 foot putt by coming up short (all hell breaks loose and the "SHORT" jokes just don't stop).. these guys are some of my best friends and it's because of my sons gettng me into this sport. . .
so, who are your heros, mentors, or just the "thorn in your side" that push-pull-drag you to be the best you can?
