altWhile raising his four children, Dan Putnam took up the game of golf as a way to spend time with them. Dan had played a bit recreationally, but not consistently, and he wanted to find an activity to work on and improve on, along with his sons Joel, Michael, Andrew and Nathan. Golf fit the bill.

The family resided in University Place, Washington, outside Tacoma (Dan and his wife Karin have lived in the same house for 19 years), and the Putnams began to frequent Fircrest Golf Club. At first, it was casual, but then Dan began to recognize the natural talent of Michael, his second-oldest son.

When Michael was about 16, Dan decided that it was about time to get him some lessons.
