Blake Mycoskie of TOMS Shoes Finishes Just Behind Bill Murray at Celebrity Golf Tournament

TOMS Shoes founder and Lavin speaker Blake Mycoskie is one of the most magnetic social entrepreneurs in the world today. His company famously gives away a pair of shoes to a child in need for every pair it sells; it recently passed the one million shoe milestone. Blake’s jam-packed schedule includes running the company (which Fast Company recently ranked alongside Apple and Nike in a survey of best retail companies), helping organize its famous shoe drops, and making countless media appearances, all in the name of spreading TOMS’ message of conscious capitalism.

This weekend, at the 2011 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, Blake took some well-deserved time out to play a quick game of golf! (A quick game of golf, it should be noted, that was nationally televised and which included the likes of Ray Romano and Kurt Russell.) Along with his partner, Vaughan Taylor, Blake breezed to a second place finish, only two strokes behind D.A. Points and his celebrity partner, comic genius Bill Murray. From founding a shoe company that changes lives to impressing seasoned golf pros with his swing, is there anything Blake Mycoskie can’t do?
