Words To Live By Brick walls are there for a reason; they give us a chance to show how badly we want something.
Best Golf Tip Target, target, target. If you can get the inside-100-yard shots right, you are ready to rumble.
Shot I Love To Practice Bunker shots and chip shots around the green. And I also love to put balls in positions where it seems impossible to hit out of.
Needs Improvement Need to sharpen my inside-100-yard shots. I want to stiff the ball from any position inside 100 yards.
Favorite Club Putter and wedge.
Ball Marker Whatever is available.
Superstitions None, but I do like to read Bible verses before leaving the hotel room.
Age I First Broke 70 13.
Lowest Round Ever 66 (I’m so desperate to break this…urg).
Love To Trade Places With Nobody.
Favorite Non-Golf Athlete Roger Federer.
