Your missing out on some cool charts...
Jerod Ewing a.k.a. Jerod Ewing
How old are you and what's your occupation?
22, Basic Illustrator at TSM Corp.
When did you start playing golf and what's your handicap?
started playing golf when I was 7. Didn't take it serious until I played high school golf. My handicap is at 1.4
How often do you play?
I try to play most evenings after work and on the weekends, about 4 times a week on an average.
Tell me about a great shot you've made.
I was playing golf at Kings North in Myrtle Beach on 568-yard the par 5 6th. I hit my first ball in the water then landed my 3rd shot about 70 yards to the pin, the pin was at the bottom of a horrific slope so I knew if I landed it to the left front it would make its way down to the back right part of the green where the pin was located. I landed it shorter than I wanted and it bit about 70 ft short of the hole, then started easing down the slope gaining speed and went in the hole for birdie. The shot probably lasted about 30 seconds. Reminded me of Tiger's chip in 2005 at the Masters' 16th.
What is your best golf memory?
Hole-In-One at Pipestem Resort State Park's 8th hole in West Virginia at a high school golf tournament. Landed an 8 iron from 170-yards perfect about 5 feet short of the pin and it rolled in.
What is your "home" course?
Willowwood Country Club in Hinton, WV.
What ball do you play?
Titleist Pro-V1 and Callaway tour i(z)
Callaway FT-5 9.5 Driver, Callaway ft fairway woods and 3i hybrid, Callaway x16 pro-series irons, Callaway X forged wedges 58 and 62 degrees, and Ping Craz-E putter.
Tiger Woods- love watching him play, he can hit shots that are nearly impossible. I'm also a fan of Brandt Snedeker, Camilo Villegas, and Phil Mickelson. If I had 1 free round with any pro golfer I would probably play with John Daly however.
Favorite course you've played?
Wild Wing Plantation - Myrtle Beach, SC. It plays to the longball hitter and the hills make it an awesome experience. I've also played all the courses at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, WV site of the Greenbrier Classic, it is amazing also.
Dream course you've yet to play?
Pebble Beach, I would love to see how good I would play there in the wind.
Best round ever- and what course?
67 (-5) at Willowwood Country Club in WV, had a 68 at a much harder course at Fountain Springs in Peterstown, WV so I was probably more excited about that.
What is one aspect of your golf game you would like to improve on in the next year?
My irons. I feel like I find myself saving par or having a long birdie putt more often than I should.
Tell me a story.
I was playing in a High School tournament at Fountain Springs. I started on the back 9 and on the 17th (8th hole) I was running down the hill and stepped in a hole, sprained my ankle and rolled down the hill with my clubs on my back, finished out my putt and eagled the par 5 18th (9th hole) barely being able to walk.
