Special Guest Perry Parker
During his career, professional golfer Perry Parker has competed in the U.S. Open three times, made 10 career holes-in-one and outplayed his childhood idol, Tom Watson, when the two were paired at the Hong Kong Open. To accomplish these feats, Perry had to work hard, remain confident and manage a hereditary bleeding disorder. “Growing up I was told that sports and hemophilia don’t go together,” Perry said. “But that’s not true because staying active is critical when managing a bleeding disorder.” Whether teaching kids an appropriate swing or competing at the highest level, Perry credits many of his successes on the golf course to living with hemophilia. “I truly believe the mental toughness I developed managing a bleeding disorder has helped me overcome the adversity and challenges I encounter on the course,”he said.
Perry lives in Laguna Niguel with his wife, Lori and their twins, Scott and Diana. He continues to play professional golf, in addition to working as a teaching pro, motivational
speaker, and tournament consultant.
