Four men chasing their dreams of making the PGA Tour, that is the essence of TourQuest. While golf brands have "teams" that consist of players who wear their gear or use their equipment, TourQuest is actually a team of guys who have banded together to support each other. Founded by Sam Goulden, the goal of TourQuest "is to give players with the desire, drive, and determination to succeed at all costs, the opportunity to do so while promoting the “grind” and love of the game which is synonymous with high level competitive golf.
While instant success stories like Jordan Speith captivate us, they are extremely rare. For most professional golfers, the PGA is the result of years of hard work, travel and living on meager budgets. Having twice sold all of his possession in order to finance his golf career, Sam Goulden knows firsthand how difficult the road to the PGA is.
"The idea of TourQuest was a result of my meeting guys who, like me, were committed to the game. Even though golf is an individual sport, there is a lot to be gained by creating a team of people who share common goals. It is my hope that as a team we will be able to support and push each other which will ultimately make each person a better player."
Sam Goulden - TourQuest Founder
In 2014, Sam Goulden, Paul Imondi, Chris Gilman and Yves Nicollier, will play in nearly every PGA Monday qualifier as they prepare for the Web.com Q-School next fall. While this approach may not be conventional, Sam believes that the experience they will gain playing against this high level competition will ultimately prepare them for the grind of going through the three stages of Web.com qualifying.
Over the next 10 month, the TourQuest team will be sharing the inside world of Monday Qualifying and life on the road. We will be posting updates on our blog but you can also follow the TourQuest team on Twitter and Instagram as they will offer a rare look into life inside the ropes.
