The Gravity Golf guru takes wing with a new teaching center amid the bustle of Atlanta's Hartsfield Airport
SI: So what's going on next to gate B16?
DL: This is the first place anywhere in the world that I'm aware of where you can take a golf lesson in an airport.
SI: How's the reaction been?
DL: We've been very well received. Airports are looking for activities besides eating, drinking and shopping for travelers, especially now that so many get to the airport early. About 35,000 people a day walk past our center, and you can't believe the number of them who are golfers. It's like the zoo, only better. If you stand here long enough, the girl of your dreams will walk past.
SI: Does she ever take a lesson?
DL: [Laughs] Sometimes.
SI: What's your facility like?
DL: We've got 750 square feet, a good portion of it taken up with the hitting booth. We have a gorgeous leather sofa. It's better than the Crown Room.
SI: How does it work?
