“Bobby Greenwood first learned to play golf at the age of 12 at the Cookeville Country Club. His accomplishments in Amateur and professional tournaments throughout his illustrious career are being recognized more and more these days.” ~ excerpt from “Greenwood appreciating past success these days”, by Buddy Pearson, Herald-Citizen Managing Editor, Sunday, July 27, 2008.
“I started golf at Cookeville Country Club when I was 12 years old. With very little results on my shots, I became interested in learning why I hit it so bad. Therefore, I was a student of the golf swing at a very early age. After much study and research, and after several years of practicing, I started to improve. My first set of clubs were hickory shafts and not very forgiving. It’s a wonder that I continued playing golf.” ~ interview by Elma Greenwood, January 9, 2011.
