Fast Eddie

"It was awesome having Eddie come out to my Brighter Days Foundation Golf outing to entertain and fundraise.  Every group was blown away at how far and straight he hit it.  He's a true Professional at his craft of Long Drive.  If he's not at your Charity Golf tournament, you're missing out!  Cheers!"
