How I Found My Soul Mate BETTER THAN A HOLE-IN-ONE

Twenty-three years ago, my life changed forever after I walked into Engineer’s Country Club on Long Island. I was playing golf professionally at the time, and I was very focused on my career. The course at Engineer’s has been highly praised since it was first constructed in 1917, but for me, the best part of that day was spent in the pro shop. That summer, a woman named Hilary was back home between her junior and senior years of college. She got a job in the pro shop to make some extra money and happened to be working when I came in that day. We started talking, and the rest is history.

I AM SO LUCKY TO HAVE SUCH AN

INCREDIBLE PERSON IN MY LIFE.

Hilary has been my valentine for over two decades, and I knew from the start she was

someone special. For our first date, we went out to eat and then played mini golf — yes, even pro golfers love mini golf. There was an instant connection between Hilary and I. We had fun together, and it felt like we could talk for hours without ever running out of things to say. Before the end of that first date, we knew there was going to be a second. Not being together just wasn’t an option for either of us. Two years later, I took Hilary to the same mini golf place that we went to for our first date. As we wrapped up the 17th hole, Hilary reached in to retrieve her ball and found an engagement ring. She turned around to find me on one knee, asking her to spend the rest of our lives together. Hearing her say yes felt better than scoring a hole-in-one. (In case you were wondering, the reason I didn’t hide the ring in the 18th hole was because at that mini golf course, the last hole attached to a shoot that automatically returned the balls to the shack. I definitely didn’t want to drop the ring in there!) On June 11, 1998, I became the luckiest guy in the world. That was the day I got to marry my soul mate, and it was as close to perfect as anything on Earth could be. We shared a happy celebration with loving friends and family. It was an amazing ceremony that kicked off a beautiful marriage together. I am so lucky to have such an

incredible person in my life. Hilary is utterly selfless and gives her all as a mother, wife, and friend. If you ever find yourself in trouble, Hilary will be there to offer sound advice and support. Through the years, the most important thing I’ve learned from my wife is patience and respect. No matter how much a couple loves each other, not every day is going to be 100 percent roses. That’s okay. As long as you have patience and respect for one another, you’ll be able to get through the bumpier days. When you find your soul mate, you’re willing to put in the work. Like I said, not being together just isn’t an option for us. Happy Valentine’s Day, Hilary. Thank you for all your support and love over the years. You amaze me every day, and I wouldn’t be the man I am today without you.

I love you.

–Dr. Harrison Linsky
