Wow.. nice hat.
Your missing out on some cool charts...
Kevin Cane a.k.a. Cal
We decided to make an Aussie our GoW this week. What that means to us is that we get to read about different dream courses and favorite pros. Kevin also took his picture wearing an oobgolf hat- so that makes him awesome. He also blogs- which you should check out. (

How old are you and what's your occupation?
40. I pretend to work at checking computer configurations and they pretend to pay me...

When did you start playing golf and what's your handicap?
Started playing probably 15 or so years ago, and it depends on the day what my handicap is. Mostly it's a toss up between the driver or the putter!

How often do you play?
Used to be once a month, but lately I've upped the ante to around twice a month. Here's a tip to play more golf - get a divorce :)

Tell me about a great shot you've made.
Hole in one, Bembridge Golf Course 31st Dec 2000, 135m Par 3 7th. Initially I thought I'd overshot the green. Whilst I was looking for the ball, one of my playing partners decided to putt out. When he went to pull the flag, there was my ball already happily nestled in the bottom of the cup. I still have the ball - really should get it mounted one day.

What is your best golf memory?
Scoring 3 birdies in a row. Sandringham Golf Course, 31st March 2002 (hmm, perhaps I should only play on the 31st of each month...) on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th holes. Realistically it's not an overly difficult course, but I've never repeated the feat anywhere since.

What is your "home" course?
No home course as such, but anywhere on the Mornington Peninsula is "home" for me.

What ball do you play?
1st Jan I buy a box of Srixon Soft Feel, and when they run out, anything I find on the course. My aim is to make a box last a year :)

Haven't they told you white men can't dance? Last time I went to a club it was called a disco! Taylormade R7 460 TP driver, Infiniti Classic Oversize II 5w and 4 through SW, Precept 3 hybrid. Putter is an Odyssey White Hot XG which I won as a long drive prize (winners of nearest to pins won drivers - go figure).

Favorite pro?
Stuart Appleby

Favorite course you've played?
The Dunes

Dream course you've yet to play?
Ushuaia - southern most golf course in the world

Best round ever- and what course?
84 - Sandringham Golf Course. I'd played there 4 times in 6 weeks to get ready for the first round of the Herald Sun Golf Challenge. It paid off on the day with the 84. One of only 4 scores below 90 in the last 10 years.

What is one aspect of your golf game you would like to improve on in the next year?
Winning matchplay. It just does not like me. I've been 5 or 6 up after 8 holes several times and lost on the 18th.

Tell me a story.
This one time, at band camp...
