Brandon, his wife and their daughter live in Chesterland, Ohio. In addition to golf, Brandon loves to ski. He’s hit most of the regional “hot” spots in Ohio, New York and Michigan. A trip to Breckenridge is one of his favorites, during which he successfully skied down a hill much too steep for his skill level.
