Your missing out on some cool charts...
Justin Hill a.k.a. UMRebelHill
This answer alone should make you want to read about Justin Hill, our Golfer of the Week: "Undoubtedly, my best golf memory is watching Arnold Palmer's final walk on 18 at Augusta National in 2004. It was my first trip to the Master's and was completely unforgettable."
How old are you and what's your occupation?
30 - Medication Safety Consultant (Basically, I sell automation and robotic equipment to Hospitals).
When did you start playing golf and what's your handicap?
I started playing in the summer of 2000 - my current handicap is 16.
How often do you play?
On a good month, I'm able to play anywhere from 4 to 8 times per month. During a bad month, I get in at least 2 to 3 rounds.
Tell me about a great shot you've made.
I've had quite a few; however, one that sticks out is a putt I holed while playing a resort course on the gulf coast of Alabama. I wasn't playing particularly well that day and my first two shots found the right side bunkers along the par 5 hole in question. I ended up on the green in 4. The green itself was extremely long and narrow and I had to negotiate just about every bit of it to reach the hole. Due to dip 3/4 of the way into my putting line, I couldn't see the base of the stick as one of the gentlemen in my group tended the flag. After hitting the putt, I had to chase after the ball just to see where it would end up. I didn't quite make it there in time; however, the group's reaction told the story. After walking it off, we determined that it was roughly a 90 foot putt to save par.
What is your best golf memory?
Undoubtedly, my best golf memory is watching Arnold Palmer's final walk on 18 at Augusta National in 2004. It was my first trip to the Master's and was completely unforgettable.

What is one aspect of your golf game you would like to improve on in the next year?
Tell me a story.
In 2001, a few buddies and I attended the final round of what was formerly known as the FedEx St. Jude Classic (currently known as the Stanford St. Jude Championship) at TPC Southwind in Memphis, TN. We were following the final pairing of John Daly and Bob Estes. The dichotomy of their approaches to each shot was comical. Estes was certainly much more methodical and diligently took his time while Daly rarely, if ever, took a practice swing. He seemed to concentrate more on smoking cigarettes and drinking Diet Coke. On one of the latter holes, an errant Daly tee shot missed the fairway left and came to rest a few inches from my right foot. True to form, Daly walked up, put his cigarette out and knocked it onto the green in what seemed like one fluid motion. The entire process couldn't have taken any more than 15 seconds.
