I suppose this would be the picture of the story!
Your missing out on some cool charts...
Jason Izreal a.k.a. izwaldthewhite
How old are you and what's your occupation?
I am 33 years old and I work as a wholesaler for an investment firm in downtown NYC.

When did you start playing golf and what's your handicap?
I started playing golf after college. My handicap is 32. I am happy to break 100.

How often do you play?
I play once a week.

Tell me about a great shot you've made.
Last year I chipped in from about 50 feet for birdie. That was cool.

What is your best golf memory?
I was playing skins with my friend Pete. I was down $20 on the seventeenth hole, which was a par three. I told Pete lets go double or nothing, closest to the hole. Pete teed off first and put a perfect 9 iron fifteen feet away. I followed with the ugliest duck hook left that hit off a tree that must have been thirty yards away from the hole. My ball bounces off the tree onto the green within ten feet. We both still laugh about that when we play that hole.

What is your "home" course?
Weequahic Park in Newark, NJ. It is the oldest public golf course in New Jersey.

What ball do you play?
Lately, I have been playing the Top-Flite Freak.

My driver is the TaylorMade R5, my irons are TaylorMade Firesoles, I have a 60 degree Wilson Lob wedge that I love. My putter is an Odyssey Dual Force.

Favorite pro?
US pro – Tiger
Foreign pro – Angel Cabrera

Favorite course you've played?
The Vista Vallarta (Jack Nicklaus) was very cool.

Dream course you've yet to play?
Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews

Best round ever- and what course?
Does Golden Tee count?! Somewhere just under 100 at Weequahic.

What is one aspect of your golf game you would like to improve on in the next year?
Consistency off the tee.

Tell me a story.
Earlier this year I was playing Apple Greens with my friend Mike, his father, and his girlfriend’s father. The two dads are pretty good golfers and take the game seriously. I had forgotten my spikes and was playing in my sneakers. We had an early tee time and the grass was wet with morning dew. During my tee shot off the second hole, my momentum took my feet from underneath me and after I hit the ball I ended up horizontal in the air, and landed flat on my back. The ball ended up going 250 yards in the dead center of the fairway.

The two dads could not stop laughing.
