Meet the Team

Mark "Hack Daniels" Coon

Founder & President

Mark served 12 years in the United States Marine Corps as a Military Policeman from 2003 to 2015. Mark served in multiple units including a combat deployment as well as an elite security unit for Marine One. Mark earned a Master’s of Science in Public Safety Leadership from Capella University while serving his country and raising a family. 

Upon returning home from Iraq Mark began playing golf again. He reconnected with his family using the game as an outlet. Mark is an avid golfer and based on personal experience understands what the game of golf can provide for Veterans, First Responders, and their families. 

William “Big A” Gorby

Vice President

Big Apple is a Marine Corps OIF Veteran who served from 2003 to 2007 in Okinawa Japan as a Military Policeman with Hack. He was recalled in 2009 where he was deployed to Iraq and stationed on TQ.

Big A holds a BA in Criminal Justice and an AS in Business Administration. He can sometimes be a movie/TV show guru depending on what his memory allows him to recall and uses movies and music to escape day-to-day struggles. Big A is an avid sports lover. Baseball, football, and basketball are at the top while being a fair-weather sports fan for almost everything else. Since Hack and Big A have reunited he has taken up the game of golf.  

Tony "That Guy" Trask

Tournament Organizer

Tony is a lifelong friend of Mark’s and an avid golfer.  The two grew up in a suburb outside of Buffalo, NY and attended the same high school.  Tony currently resides in West Michigan and works as a manufacturing facility manager.

On his off time he enjoys spending time with his family and restoring his classic car passed down to him by his father.

Tony and Mark reconnected following Mark’s time in the service.  The two instantly recognized that they still share a deep love for the game of golf and how they both use it as a means of relaxation and stress relief.

Tony supports the organizing of events outside our home base of Utah. One Swing currently holds events in UT, NY and MI
