Hey all! I’m new to the Pitsco family. After interning a while, I started as a full-time Marketing Specialist. Days are busy assisting with digital marketing projects and anything else needed around the department. I knew marketing would be a great fit for me, as I love to share my passions with anyone who will listen. I recently graduated from Kansas State University (GO CATS!) and moved to a farm that has given me a lot of new experiences. Now my downtime is spent renovating me and and my husband’s new home, road-tripping, and being a foodie.

Fairway to learning: Bringing the golf game home

Posted by Molly Underwood on April 07, 2020

Golf isn’t just your grandparents’ game anymore. With young golfers gaining popularity and the pop-up of golf entertainment venues such as Topgolf and Drive Shack, more and more people are starting to take a swing at it. As for me, I was born into a family of golfers and love being able to take on my closest competitors (aka my brothers) in the game. 

Golf is a sport that you can start whenever and play for a long time. Age doesn’t matter! Let’s tap into this age-old game.

Consider it an extended celebration 😉. Get on the grain train with us as we dive spoonfirst into some cereal-ously good breakfast history and the process it takes to make that perfect bowl.
