Sean D. Tucker

Member Club: Corral de Tierra

Handicap Index: 13.1

Occupation: Stunt Pilot, Air-Show Performer, Team Oracle Hometown: Salinas Honors: National Aviation Hall of Fame; Named one of

the 25 “Living Legends of Flight” by the National Air and Space Smithsonian; Only civilian performer allowed to fl y close formation with the Blue Angels and Thunderbirds Overcoming Obstacles: As a kid I was enamored with

fl ight. I jumped out of a plane seven times when I was 17. I had a lot of fear at fi rst and that became a self-fulfi lling prophecy. I conquered my fear and have loved it ever since. Career Path: I was a crop duster in the Salinas Valley for

years. I’ve made my living as an acrobatic fl yer and air show performer for the last 20 years. Oracle has been my sponsor for the last 10. Popular Sport: Air shows are like “Top Gun,” the Fourth

of July and the Indianapolis 500 all rolled into one. More than 20 million people attended an air show in North America last year; that’s second only to Major League Baseball as a live spectator event. Making a Connection: I have an extreme lifestyle. I heli-ski

in the Canadian Rockies and I’m an underwater cave diver. But sometimes I relate best to others through golf. You never forget the relationships you make when playing. That shared passion is signifi cant. Positive Thinking: With air show fl ying, I can’t

have a bad day. Golf, you have to think about what you’re doing. You have to become the ultimate optimist. You can’t think about the negatives. Golf and Nerves: Sometimes I fl y in front of

a million people and I engage in that moment, but when I have to make a fi ve-footer to win a bet, that’s entirely different. I do not have the mental toughness for golf that I have when I fl y. Getting Older: Most other activities get

harder when you get older. I’m a better pilot today than ever. But I’m living my dream. I wake up every morning challenged and excited.
