Favorite club in the bag: Tie between a 3 wood, 5 wood, and 3 iron. If my other clubs were that easy I might be a golfer. Ha ha! Golf books/DVDs that have helped you: None but I pick up things to try from U-Tube videos of Jack Nicklaus later in his career and Steve Stricker now. (And no I can't swing like either one of them). Where do you play: Mostly small courses in Alabama and public courses in Chattanooga. Best courses you've played so far: No "best" but favorite (and at times the hardest) Soldiers Creek near Foley, AL. Things you enjoy most about golf: Spending time with my son doing something we both love to do. Goals for 2013: To see if there is any way to learn to keep my head down without my scores going up. (Going to be a chore).
