Do you wear soft spikes on your golf shoes or are you still wearing metal spikes?  I was working the AT&T several years ago for shotlink and i was surprised at how many players still used metal spikes.

I played there last year, Carl

Never got to meet Jack in person until I was a pro. 

Dang. That was the first year I didn't work there in quite a while. I was getting ready to move down here to FL.

What do you think of 18? I liked it better before they lengthened it.

I wear soft spikes on my shoes. 

I am okay with the 18th at Muirfield. I like a closing hole that can have a birdie or a bogey. A fair hole. I don't like a hole like 18th at Merion where a birdie is a miracle or 18th at Baltusrol where a par feels like a bogey.

What's the hardest hole on tour?

Statistically, I am not sure. I am sure you could check it. 

The stats might not back this one up but the 18th at Sawgrass is one intimidating hole. Water left on tee shot, approach shot and not an easy green. Tough closing hole.

Sorry, I guess I should rephrase, what Is the hardest hole on tour you've played? 

How did you get in to wearing the large sponsor logo's?

Same answer jsgolfer. 18th at Sawgrass. 

But the 7th at Baltusrol could give that a run. Built as a par 5 in my opinion. Hole is 505 uphill and unless you want to get super risky makes you hit long iron or 3 wood off tee. Then you have 240 in (Generous tee shot) Fast greens that run like glass added to the equation and a par is like a eagle.

Why do you think that a fan deflecting, or picking up a ball should be treated differently than interference from any other outside agency?  

Maybe because a fan is a conscious entity (though sometimes they behave as if they're not), and anything else is unconscious?

Hi! As others have said, thanks for allowing us the time to get your insights. It is seriously cool.

When you are mid field in the closing stages of a tournament, i.e no realistic chance of winning or a top 20 even, is there a thought or routine you have that ensures you still perform the best you are able to?

Or, to put it another way, if you take away the money aspect, what is it that most motivates you to compete?

Funny you mention the logos. More of an advantage to me and my sponsors. The more airtime I get the happier the companies are with the large sponsor logos on my shirts. 

Chris, I just treat it the same as any other day. You simplify golf. Make it basic. What motivates me to compete is to get a win. and hopefully that will come this week.

How did you discover The Sand Trap and how long have you been reading the site before you started this thread?

Do you typically play in the Pro-Am before the tournament.  If so, have you played with anyone famous and have you played with any really good players?

I had to smile at this one and was thinking "Have any really good players played with someone as famous as you". But I know what the poster meant.

Hi Kyle, thanks for being on the site. Tell us about how do you deal with mental errors and if there is a 'mindfulness check list' before each shot. Is there a stay-on-the-tracks process at your level?

Truly appreciate you making yourself available on an open forum.

I have read the Sand Trap for last month really, as a guest. I always play in Pro-Ams.  But I do it because it is a fun relaxed round with amateurs. Wednesday is about them, not me. I have not played with anyone really famous. 

I just try to commit to my shots. Physical errors will happen, but you can't compound it. Bad shots are ok, dumb shot are not.

Please note I am in Las Vegas for Shriners now and am under PDT time. The grind starts now.
