Tell me about a great shot you've made.
A while back I almost had my first hole-in-one. I hit a 9-iron to a couple inches on a 123-yard par 3. I though it was in the whole way until it turned just at the end.

A couple of weeks ago, I finally shot an even-par 72 at Norsk Golf Club, going out in 38 and coming in with a two-under 34 on my back nine.

Tiger Woods, simply the best golfer ever.

TPC at Deere Run in Silvis, IL

Dream course you've yet to play?
I would love to play either Pebble Beach Golf Links or Augusta National Golf Club someday.

Best round ever- and what course?
71 at Norsk Golf Club

What is one aspect of your golf game you would like to improve on in the next year?
Putting, I'm just not consistent from ten feet and in.

Tell me a story.
I played TPC at Deere Run last August. I only needed to bogey the 18th hole to shoot a 79. I promptly hit my tee shot right into the trees. No big deal, as I was able to punch out to 100 yards. I chunked a 52-degree wedge short of the green and hit a poor chip, leaving me a twenty-footer to save bogey. By now, I was getting angry, so I hardly took any time lining up my putt. I just stepped up, hit the putt, and somehow it found its way into the back of the cup. That was a truly an amazing way to break 80 on a really difficult golf course!

Thanks bducharm! Yeah, I guess I meant everyday-in the summer. Obviously I can't golf in the winter here in Wisconsin, but it was 50 degrees one day last January.
