The Golfer: Luke Brosterhous

Luke Brosterhous

After college, Brosterhous spent a season teaching skiing in Steamboat. He knew he wanted to settle down there; now all he had to do was figure out how to make it work. "I didn't want to become a crusty, 60-year-old ski bum," he says. Brosterhous left Steamboat, played on golf's PGA Tour for a year and a half, taught the sport in Bhutan for four months, got a master's in sports psychology...and then felt he was ready to move back. "When I returned to Steamboat, I was able to transfer those experiences into a career." In 2008, he started Authentic Golf, a golf-instruction-and-travel company. And, of course, the 30-year-old skis. "We'll gladly suffer high mortgages," he says, "so we can ski 100 days per year."
