Keefe Gorman leverages extensive experience in financial planning and wealth management to serve as a managing director with Merrill Lynch. When he isn’t assisting clients at Merrill Lynch, Keefe Gorman enjoys various outdoor activities, including golf.
In a recent article for Golf Magazine, golf coach Dave Pelz shared tips on how to execute a 10- to 15-yard pitch shot over a hazard. He explains that improper technique is typically to blame when players hit into the hazard by “chunking” the ball, as they use their standard pitching club, a normal grip, and their usual backswing length. According to Mr. Pelz, this technique is appropriate for a 30- to 40-yard shot, so players decelerate during the swing in an effort to hit the ball a shorter distance.
To avoid detrimental deceleration in wedge play, Dave Pelz recommends that players utilize a lob wedge for more loft and a softer shot. He also suggests that players shorten their grip on the loft wedge to remove power while shortening their backswing to about hip height.
Industry-recognized financial advisor Keefe Gorman serves as a managing director with Merrill Lynch. On top of his responsibilities at Merrill Lynch, Keefe Gorman has held several advisory roles with organizations in his community, including a position on the Board of Directors for Foodnet Meals on Wheels in Tompkins County, New York.
In March, Foodnet hosted another Mac ‘n Cheese Bowl, a community fundraising event that benefits the organization’s efforts to support elderly community members and individuals with disabilities who are unable to shop or cook their own meals. The 2015 event at Ithaca High School featured a wide range of exciting activities for attendees of all ages, including a demonstration on the science and art of pasta from the co-founder of Wide Awake Bakery. For young mac ‘n cheese lovers, Foodnet organized a KidZ Korner, where children could make postcards to accompany the meals that are distributed to Foodnet clients.
A number of first-time Bowl participants, such as Coltivare and Greenstar Cooperative Market, debuted their products at the 2015 event, while other local caterers and restaurants returned to present their wares at the most recent Bowl. For the 2015 Bowl, Foodnet also created a Kid’s Choice Award so children between the ages of 5 and 12 could vote for their preferred mac ‘n cheese dish.
