I met Eric one evening when practicing on the Westlake driving range. I didn't know much but in 30 minutes I improved greatly. That began my private lessons where I learned so much. I hated the big stick of chalk he used to draw around my foot so I would learn to swing without moving. It never lied. But eventually, I did. I enjoyed his jokes and he was interested in my tennis and Argentine Tango dancing as he once competed in dance. When he got an iPhone I helped keep him out of "the rough". He will be missed.
