A huge thank you to @mercedesbenzusa for inviting me to the Wilshire Country Club today to play golf with some amazing people. Being an #mbambassador is probably the only reason my mom still loves me & now my dad will love me more than my siblings because I got to step foot on this course. In fact when I post this someone is definitely getting fired for letting me play here. “She told me she was just using the range” explained the former employee. ⛳️ (also, if you can golf .. feel free to pass along tips to even out this swing, great.. thanks)
