Allow Me to Introduce Myself

Hi All! My name is Chris McMillan and I am the new four-monthblog photo intern for the Legends Junior Tour. I am from Winneconne, Wisc., which is a small town about an hour outside of Green Bay. I am currently studying marketing at Fox Valley Technical College in Appleton, Wisc. and also hold a degree in Computer Networking. Back in Wisconsin, I work for the Menasha Joint School district as a Technology Support Technician and have been there for a little more than five years. I have also coached high school baseball, middle school track and field, as well as middle school football during my time at Menasha.

I am a huge sports fan and enjoy watching or playing just about any sport I can. I’ve been playing golf since I was 6 years old and also competed at the Varsity level my freshman year of high school. Nowadays, I enjoy golfing with friends any chance I get and trying out new courses. The Wisconsin golf season can sometimes last only four or five months, so I get my hacks in while I can!

Last summer, I decided to go back to school to broaden my skills with the goal of gaining employment in the sports world. Sports have been a big part of my life and after working in the technology field since 2011, I knew I needed to get on a path that led me back to the sports realm. That thought was merely just that about 12 months ago, a thought. That was, until I applied back to school, started taking classes, and then started looking for an internship that would help propel me into my new career path. I came across the P.J. Boatwright, Jr. internships that are offered across the country and decided to apply to the Texas Golf Association for their summer internship. I knew that it would probably be a long shot, but at the same time I was confident in my knowledge and work ethic if I were to get a chance to be a part of the organization. I went through the interview process and got the call back in February that they wanted to offer me the internship. I was ecstatic to begin my new journey in golf and officially began on May 2.

I hope to learn all the ins and outs that go with working for the Texas Golf Association and the Legends Junior Tour. I’m really excited to get to experience a whole new state in our travels this summer and to really understand all the behind the scenes work that goes into making a golf tournament a success. Already in the one day that I’ve been here, I see that there are many hard working men and women that make the whole operation tick. I hope that I can be even just a small part of helping make them successful!

Continuing with the “Favorite Five” theme, I will tell you some of my favorite places to go in Wisconsin if you ever get the chance to visit!lambeau

  1. Lambeau Field (Green Bay) – I might be slightly biased with this one but it
    truly is a great atmosphere for football.
  2. The Wisconsin Dells
  3. Devil’s Lake State Park (Baraboo)
  4. Cave of the Mounds (Blue Mounds)
  5. Wyalusing State Park (Bagley)

 

Thanks for taking some time to learn a little about me and I look forward to the rest of the summer!
