Alexander Toth came to love golf in a very surprising way. After a car accident left him immobile, he fought and recovered to resume work as a security officer. Then, one morning after a midnight shift he saw Arnold Palmer walking outside of a hotel. They would talk for several minutes. Instead of going home it was at this point that he bought his first set of clubs. Golf was formally introduced to him.
Since that chance meeting, Alexander has been immersed in golf. For him, it’s more than a game, sport, or a career. It’s a passion! Alexander has worked in the golf industry first as a Marshall, an Associate Professional, an Assistant Manager, and finally a Director of Golf. He’s also competed on “Developmental Tours” and U.S. Open qualifying and takes great enjoyment teaching golfers. Both instructional and educational.
For the past decade, Alexander has written about anything that has to do with golf. From editorials to golf equipment reviews. Reviews that are genuine because, as he says “Honest and unbiased should go without saying”.
When Alexander isn’t writing about or playing golf, he can be found with his Black Labrador (Muskoka) at his side, on a stream fly fishing, or playing his 12-string guitar.
Alexander is looking forward to sharing his thoughts and insights with “The Traveling Golfer” community.
