An Interview with Tyson Quink

Tyson discusses his experience at the 2019 Brightspot Unified Challenge and how his life has been in the year since with Special Olympics golfer and fellow competitor, Matthew Gang.

Matthew Gang: Did you have fun playing at Creighton Farms last year?

Tyson Quink : It was a great course. It was great to play with the group of young folks that I got to play with. I would say they're tremendous golfers so it was fun to play with them and see their skill sets.

Gang: It was great for all of us. The first tee, the veterans, do you agree?

It was awesome. I think it's always great when young folks can get together and see different perspectives and know how other people are living life. I think sports are a great conduit for that and if that's the mission of the event, it was successful and hopefully, it had an impact on the young folks that were playing in it.d here.

Gang: Why what was your best memory as a golf course.

Quink: On the best memory. I mean, it was a heck of a course for sure. I mean, it's in incredible condition. I always enjoy seeing people play really well. And I think that was a good memory and then just chatting with them, you know, what are they doing.

Gang: What makes that great for you?

Quink: You know to meet people. I think that's kind of what I enjoyed about that event as well. You get to meet people from all over the country.

Gang:  I don't have any more questions. How about you?

Quink:  Sounds good.  I appreciate it and you have a good rest of your day.  I look forward to talking to you again.

Gang:  Thanks for your time today.  It was great catching up with you.  I hope we get to play golf together soon.

Tyson and Matthew Discuss the 2019 Brightspot Unified Challenge

Gang: How has your year been since we saw you last?

Quink: Been good. I stay busy with work and you know the family and you know all those normal commitments, trying to get out and play golf, as much as I can see.

Gang: Can you tell me anything cool that has happened to you since last year?

Quink: You know, to see my kids continue to grow up and you know the different challenges they get to face and what they learn from each one. I think that's always pretty cool seeing them turn into a little people. And then become a grown-up.

Gang: How are your kids doing now?

Quink: I think they're doing all right. I think there's definitely a little bummed, they won't be going to school. You know, in person, this year.

Gang: What is your favorite music?

Quink: I'm more of a country music fan.

Gang: I totally agree. I am a country fan and I'm an R&B guy.

Gang: When it comes to learning new things. What is your favorite subject?

Quink: Favorite subject is definitely things that are related to technology. I work in the technology industry. I enjoyed computers and software. When you're interested in something you tend to invest more time and energy to really learn and pick it up.

Gang:  I don't have any more questions. How about you?

Quink:  Sounds good.  I appreciate it and you have a good rest of your day.  I look forward to talking to you again.

Gang:  Thanks for your time today.  It was great catching up with you.  I hope we get to play golf together soon.
