Citizens of the Game
Ben Garner : The Legend
Ben Garner, the man, the myth, the legend. We call him ‘BGarnes’ or 'Gentle Ben', although our kids call him 'Uncle Ben’. He’s our go to guy in Hawaii, our first call to play a round of golf with, hell, he’s the only plus-handicap that I know who plays righty and putts lefty, and he’s still the most down to earth guy on the range or in the water. We were beyond excited to see him and a bit of his life story featured in Golfers Journal - Issue 17, as his story is modern day greek mythology, and best of all, it’s all true.
He’s our original Citizen of the Game, a founding member of team RADMOR, and arguably the best junior golfer (not named Tiger Woods) in Southern California (circa 1994). Here's a short excerpt from the Golfer's Journal article by Charlie Warzel.
