As far as Tour Edge founder David Glod is concerned, the two best things his father, Jim, ever did for him were introduce him to golf as a youngster and tout the virtues of working for oneself.
“My dad was not much of a player, but he did like the game,” said Glod, who grew up in Glen Ellyn, Illinois, just west of Chicago. “He also moved us to a house next to a nine-hole municipal course when I was 4 years old. I used to scrounge for golf balls in a field by our home and sell them to golfers across the fence. I also started playing at that course and also another one in town, called Village Links. And it was there that I started repairing and re-shafting clubs. Eventually, I became so busy that I set up my own shop in my parents’ garage, for customers from that place and other clubs in and around Chicago.”
