McDonald played collegiate golf at Penn State, and wanted to pursue a professional career but back problems - and problems finding sponsors - prevented her from pursuing the tour. She became head coach of the women's golf team at Monmouth University in 2002.

Michaelides was the two-time team MVP on the men's golf team at Long Island University, the school where he now coaches the men's and women's golf teams. He has experience playing the mini-tours, and has worked at various clubs and courses including Bethpage.
