Q & A:
How long have you been playing golf?
After I retired, in 1996, I started playing. So for 21 years.
What course would you play that you haven’t played already?
I’ve played Augusta already, which seems to be a lot of peoples favorite, so I would say Winged Foot Golf Club. I’ve heard lots of good things about it.
At Winged Foot Golf Club, would you rrather play the best golf you have ever played BUT with the worst foursome? Or the worst golf you have ever played but with the best foursome?
I would play the best that I have ever played with worst foursome.
If you could play with your dream foursome who would the players be?
Freddy Couples, Jack Nicklaus, and Tiger Woods
For the amateur players out there, what advice do you have for them?
Remember, you are only going to get out of something that you are going to put in. If you don’t put in anything you shouldn’t expect to get something in return.
