Lindsay Myers joined the GAP staff in February as the Director of Development for
the J. Wood Platt Caddie Scholarship Trust.

band Don (a 15-year caddie at Oakland Hills Country Club in Michigan)
is an attorney in Philadelphia and their three dogs can often be heard
barking from the second hole at Coatesville when an errant ball finds
its way into their yard.
