Covid-19 Golf Interview with Nathan Gaskins

I decided to dig into the golf team by asking Nathan Gaskins a couple of questions about his game, the team, and if and how Covid-19 will affect next year’s golf season. I went into stuff like what his clubs are to skill sets of everyone on the team. Next year the team will be losing two very good players.

Me, Will, Jack, Max, Gavin, Kubitius, maybe Bergansky.
