Author Christian Chensvold, a native Californian, discovered golf after moving to New York City. On the tenth hole of life, he hit his first golf ball on the third-floor simulator at the Brooks Brothers flagship store on Madison Avenue. Three years later he broke 80 (outdoors, no less). Chensvold is a luxury and men’s lifestyle writer, best-known for his Web projects, including the traditional American menswear site Ivy-Style.com, and his latest project, GolfStyle.guru, which celebrates classic attire on the course.
