Light / Dark

Sandra Boynton has sold over 70 million children’s books, 500 million greeting cards, and has been nominated for a Grammy. So what does she have to do with golf? 

According to her first publisher, Mike Keiser, Boynton’s work financed the building of Bandon Dunes. 

Fresh off her profile in TGJ No. 18, Boynton joins host Tom Coyne to discuss working for Keiser’s greeting card company after graduating Yale, turning down his original offer in exchange for royalties, Keiser’s meritocratic leadership style, the inspiration behind her designs, how they sparked Dream Golf, and quite possibly making the first hole-in-one in Bandon history.
