Cooper's first encounter with golf happened during a chance visit to a driving range about a decade ago, when a friend encouraged him to pick up a club and try to hit some balls. Cooper, however, showed little interest and was reluctant to learn the game. It wasn't until the spring of 2014, when he saw all his buddies were busy playing golf and were leaving him behind, that he decided to pick up the game. In no time, Cooper was hooked. He found the game of golf fascinating and irresistible. Golf has got into his blood. Cooper is passionately involved with the Society, and devotes much time and effort in facilitating the development of various important aspects of the Society.
