on the Professional Golfer's
Association (PGA) tour. He may
reach that golfing pinnacle one
day, but for now the Bloomfield Hills
native is doing as much driving on the
road as he is on the golf course.
Levy, 26, was Michigan's high school
golf champion as a Birmingham Groves
senior in 1993. He played four years of
college golf and captained Iowa State's
team as a senior.
For the last four years Levy has played
numerous mini-tour and local tourna-
ments across the U.S. and Canada. "I
probably average about 35,000 miles a
year on my car," Levy reports. "You have
to get used to being alone. It's a sacrifice,
to get where you want to get. But it's
definitely worth it."
He's made two attempts at the PGAs
annual "qualifying school," which is
really a three-stage tournament in
which about 35 out of more than
1,000 players receive their coveted
PGA tour cards. He's missed earning
a spot in stage two by a handful of
shots each time.
Levy's one golfing moment in the
sun, so far, was a TV commercial
appearance with Tiger Woods. "He
liked to joke around and he even
called me 'Johnny Boy' by the end
of the day, like he was one of my
on Levy and Tiger Woods
buddies," Levy says.

Nevertheless, the team's participation in
the events may boost the game in Israel.
In-line hockey is fairly new to Israel,
where it's played outdoors with a ball
