Kevin Dawson
Age: 59
Job: Golf magician

"I fell in love with golf and magic as a kid. I watched The Magic Land of Allakazam on Saturday mornings. Doing magic on courses all these decades has let me journey through golf. I've been to Scotland, China, all over the United States — places like Oakmont and Bethpage. I love people. I've performed for two presidents and for Arnold Palmer. When I do card tricks or sleight of hand with balls and tees, it's the reactions I love. I'm a 1.5 handicap. Magic and golf both take hard work and soft hands. I can cover my mistakes in magic. There are no bogeys. Golf's not like that. My greatest trick? I shot a level 72 at the Old Course at St. Andrews, with an ace on number 8. That was magical."
