David Morano Gets the Experience of a Lifetime By: Courtney Curcio In late May, David Morano, an Assistant PGA Professional from the Country Club of York, got an experience of a lifetime. Morano had the opportunity to travel to Seoul, South Korea to caddie for K.J. Choi in the SK Telecom Open, a Korean PGA Tour Major Championship. Morano's path to South Korea began this past winter after he caddied for Choi in an event in Florida. Noting how well Morano handled Choi's bag and the chemistry between the two, Morano would ultimately get a call from Choi's manager when his client would need a looper for the event in South Korea. Morano's journey to become Choi's caddy was nothing if not first class. Morano would travel to South Korea in a first class seat before being picked up in a luxory car by his personal driver for the week and unlike most new tour caddies, Morano was given top notch accommodation in one of the finest hotels in Seoul. It wasn't all glitz and glamor for Morano though. As soon as he got off the plane, he was on his way to the course for a practice round as he would need to do some prep work for the pro-am the next morning. In talking about his experience Morano said, "It was such a cool experience and everyone was so accommodating." Although Choi doesn't speak fluent English, Morano stated that Choi would still joke randomly with him and treat everyone great. "I just can't believe this actually happened to me", said Morano who was still in shock when he returned from his trip. "Perhaps the biggest thing I learned from this experience is that you never know who is watching."
