A Semester …of Golf?
ASH student Josh Rosenbloom traded the cold winter of Pittsburgh at Carnegie Mellon University for a semester of warm, breezy days in Hawai‘i. Sure, there is lots to do here and lots of cultural diversity to experience, but let’s face it; the main reason Josh made the trip was to golf. An avid scratch golfer with shockingly few years of golf experience behind him, Josh is touring the island with clubs in hand, shooting and putting on courses fronting the ocean, nestled in the lush jungles, or housed on Disney’s newest resort. Take a look at our interview and see what else motivates Josh.
