Golf Bachelor – January 2007

Leonard Finkle

Where are you from?
I originally grew up in south Jersey, just outside of Philadelphia.

When is your birthday?
September 13, 1954

What do you do to make money?
I'm a freelance golf writer and I've written a book, The Secrets to the Game of Golf & Life. I also work as a public relations and marketing consultant for golf companies and companies looking to do business in the world of golf.

What, besides golf, do you do for fun?
Lately I've been playing a lot of no limit Texas hold ‘em poker. I enjoy music and concerts, old movies, reading and eating out, particularly ethnic foods like Chinese, Thai and Indian. I also like spending time in national parks and hiking in the mountains. Though I like the outdoors, come nighttime I want a room with a comfortable bed and hot and cold running water. No roughing it during the nighttime.

Tell us about your ideal woman?
If I knew the answer to this question, I wouldn't be the bachelor the month, would I? I used to have a checklist when I was younger but there is no such thing as the perfect person for someone. I'm quite comfortable with my current life, though it would be great to have someone to share it with. She would be fit and reasonably attractive and definitely a non-smoker.

How often do you date?
My last girlfriend was an alcoholic and that could best be described as a nightmare. The last couple of years I have not been dating much at all. It just so happens at the urging of the publisher of Florida Golf Central, Terrie Purdum, I joined a dating site and I just started meeting new people again.

What is your perfect date?
First we’d play 18 on a beautiful golf course. After a massage, sauna or steam and a Jacuzzi, we'd head for some sort of Asian cuisine. Afterwards, we ’d snuggle and...

What three things would you need to survive on a deserted island?

That's easy, people that smoke!!!
