"We do a lot of traveling to the different pro-am tournaments in the off-season," says Strock. "I love the game, I really do. I have no aspirations of being a professional, but I'd like to get as good as I possibly can."
Between his job at Doral Park, which entails mostly public relations work and running tournaments (80 last year), and his involvement with several charities (March of Dimes, Multiple Sclerosis Society, Boys Club, Juvenile Diabetes Foundation and the Fair Haven Center), Strock actually spends less time at home during the spring and summer than he does during the season.
"I asked him once if he ever got tired of golf," says Debby. "He just said, 'No,' and went out to play."
And while Marino may be the No. 1 quarterback of the Dolphins, there is no argument as to who the better golfer of the two is. Well, there's argument, but that's about all.
"I keep saying I'm going to beat him before he turns 40," says Marino. "And I guess I don't have much time left."
"You could definitely say I'm on the downswing of my career," Strock says. "I'm the only Dolphin around with a Super Bowl ring, and I'd love another one. I love being involved with the game. I love being a part of the team.
"Look at it this way: I run a 5.2 40-yard dash, I can't run far or jump high, but I'm still here."
Wouldn't you be smiling, too?
