Josh Dorsett - Class of 2018
Hi Josh! We heard you love to play golf. Tell us about how you got interested in playing?
Golf is definitely one of my favorite things to do. I started playing during my freshman year of college when my roommates would invite me (I was AWFUL). I think one of the reasons I kept coming back to it was because I hated how bad I was at it, and I just wanted to get better. I have been playing as much as I can ever since.
What’s been your favorite course to play on?
That’s easy… FarmLinks in Sylacauga. The place is incredible.
What has been your best personal score?
80. I’m pretty proud of that considering where I was when I started a few years ago. The goal every time I play is to break 80 (and/or beat Austyn Grissom which usually isn’t too hard).
How have you made time during our busy schedule to play?
There’s definitely plenty of time to play as a dental student if you are disciplined. Going to the range or out on the course to play 9 is always a good study break. There’s always the weekends, too. Saturdays are for anything but studying/school so that’s usually my favorite day to play. Dental school would be miserable if you didn’t allow yourself to have a little fun every once in a while.
What advice do you have for a dental student who is interested in learning how to play while in dental school?
Find friends in your class that you enjoy being around and just go out and play as much as possible.
