Personal
The self-inflicted nickname “Hammerhead” has carried Brian through the 2001-2 seasons and into the 2004 season Brian’s irons came around and allowed him to crack the 80 scoring barrier. Since having a second child in 2005, his handicap has exploded again and he is now retooling both his equipment and his swing to a slightly more upright take-away in order to defend the last ROMP title in 2002.
