AKA: Slammin Sammy

Current MGI Status: MGI VIP

Handicap: 12.9

Silver Lake CC

MGI Experience: Since the beginnings …

“I met the Vegas guys in 2005, and that year there was only 6 of us, Keip, Mez, Grant, Goleno, D Waltz, and me. It has grown in to something special over the years. In 2018, of the 6, 4 of us are still going strong with Keip, Goleno, Grant, and myself. It has been a long fun journey! 

Golf Strengths: 

My #1 strength is being able to beat GOLENO for side action every day the MGI is played, I OWN him! 

My new equipment, my wine expertise, and my creative cocktails also!

(I am a a TaylorMade Staff Player, and will be playing either the M3 or M4 Driver in Mesquite in 2018)

Golf Weaknesses: My back, my elbow, my inability to read my own putts.

MGI moment: “I missed the MGI in 2013, and I realized shortly after that it was a big mistake! I missed seeing everyone and the warm weather and returned strong in 2014!” stated Sam. “Some of the MGI crew I only see once a year, and that is what makes it a special trip to catch up with everyone!”

2014 I rolled out a special homemade beverage for everyone at night, and it was a huge hit, and in it has been ever since, the “TransFusion” lives on in 2018!
