Gus’ recent presentation at the Golf Club's 'Father, Sons and Friends Night' drew the highest appreciation. Many members attending have since indicated to me how much they gleaned from it, how it set up a long overdue conversation with their sons (about mental health but also about subject matters between father and son that are traditionally swept under the carpet) and how encouraging it is that RSGC is playing a role (albeit a small one) in surfacing these issues and what Gotcha4life is doing. In short, you were superb; both your set piece and your easy style in handling the Q&A.
