OFF THE JOB
On the weekend, Wayne enjoys yard projects, golf, mountain biking and occasionally snowboarding. He has proudly watched his wife run many of her 15 marathons (and counting). Wayne has always been an avid Beaver fan but, in a controversial move (according to family and friends), he attended law school in Eugene.
On summer evenings, Wayne can often be found on the golf course. However, he will never have golf bragging rights in his family. Not only did his dad (DeRoss) set a then world-record by playing 365 consecutive holes at 55 under par (in 1961 while attending Seattle University on a golf scholarship), the former plus 2 handicapper has made 20 aces along with 1 double-eagle (most recently, the spry 72 year old aced a 216 yard par 3). DeRoss now sits two better than Tiger and is tied with Jack.
