Born in Durban, South Africa, Azor fell in love with the game a little late in life. He served an apprenticeship in the printing industry and then went into print sales. In the early nineties he moved to the United States with his wife Glynis, and their two sons Dave and Clint. In 1994 he and Glynis established "Electronic Pencil" a Graphic Design company. In 2004 they started a golf magazine; he currently enjoys writing for their publication and writing the editorial for Myrtle Beach Golfaway’s website. “Besides the challenge and fun factor, the camaraderie on the golf course is second to none, it’s a blessing to spend time with good people and play a great game in such tranquil settings,” says Azor.
