Who introduced you to golf? My father.

Ever had a hole-in-one? I'm lucky to have eight holes in one!
Where's one place you've always wanted to play that you haven't yet? Augusta National
Favorite memory on the course? My son was my caddy during the MasterCard Championship on the Champion's Tour. It was my best finish, a tie for fourth place. But it was on number 18 when I went for the last hole in two a par five and hit it about 10 feet. My sons reaction I will never forget.
Favorite person to play with? Billy Casper, a great friend of mine and a Hall of Fame member.
Golfer you look up to the most? Jack Nicklaus
Do you have a current PGA Tour player that you like to root for? I enjoy watching Tiger Woods. His talent on the course is exceptional.
What grips do you play? PURE Grips PURE Pros in Caddie Blue & PURE Black
Favorite ball? Bridgestone
Gloves or no gloves? Gloves- I use Bridgestone.
One golf gadget that you can't live without? Range finder
Would you rather golf in HOT weather or COLD weather? Hot, but under 100 degrees.
Are you superstitious (do you bring a lucky rabbit's foot to the course, etc)? No, I'm not superstitious!
What do you struggle with most on the course? My chipping. The nerves are getting older!
What are some tips you'd give to someone who is brand new to golf? Start with the short game, chipping and putting.
Has anyone ever given you a piece of advice that changed your game and what was it? John Jacobs. I was playing with him and Roberto De Vincenzo, and I made a great putt and left the green. John came to me the next tee and told me out of respect for your playing partners wait at the green until they have also finished the hole.
What's the most valuable lesson that golf has taught you? Honesty. It's the only sport that you call penalties on yourself.
