Meet Sam Goulden
In 2012, determined to see growth in his game, Sam again sold all possessions and set out on a journey. This time he would travel the country, playing in PGA Tour qualifiers, and documenting his journey on YouTube. He lived out of his car, eating on a budget of $5 a day, sleeping in a tent for weeks, relying on the kindness of friends (and sometimes strangers) for support. Sam didn’t care about not having nice clothes, brand new Titleists, or even sleeping in his car. He had determined years ago that he would do whatever it took to reach his goal.
Through the constant documentation of his journey, Sam’s following on YouTube grew to over 3,000 views per day and over a half million views. He started writing golf instruction books and is now a top 20 golf author on Amazon. He taught clinics and sold training aids and apparel. He started to see that he didn’t have to sleep in a tent to reach his goals. The experiences were well worth it but not necessary for success. In this realization, he determined to help others who had the desire and focus, but not the funds, to reach their goals.
Sam believes that giving is growth. He hopes to spread his love of sharing with the members of #TourQuest team with the goal of someday having a major influence in the lives of millions of people.
