Tharps loves to play golf although he claims to not be very good. Saltwater fishing is also one of his favorite hobbies. Inshore, offshore, and lately nearshore chasing tarpon and triple tail all own him which is why he lives on the Gulf. The last few years, he has started to enjoy cooking and grilling.
