Is Dan's swing as smooth as Jager?
Your missing out on some cool charts...
Dan Lee a.k.a. D.Lee
Anyone who can go on a "golf binge" and describe his favorite golf Ernie Els as "smooth like Jager" is cool in my book.

How old are you and what's your occupation?
30, I help people make money with their money.

When did you start playing golf and what's your handicap?
I first started at 18, but I didn't really start playing with any regularity until about a year ago. According to you, 16.1.

How often do you play?
I try to play at least once a week, but I'll squeeze in as many rounds as I can.

Tell me about a great shot you've made.
Other than my hole-in-one, it was my first eagle. I had a 70 yard approach from the right-hand rough to an elevated green that sloped to the left. The pin was up, but was guarded by a bunker on the front right. I hit a soft flier that just cleared the bunker, hit my spot, released to the hole, and disappeared. It was the most exhilarating feeling! My cart partner and I started yelling immediately. Meanwhile, my buddies in the other cart missed the whole thing and were looking at us like we were idiots.

What is your best golf memory?
I went on an 8 day golf binge with a group of guys to Hawaii earlier this year. On the last day, and after our fourth consecutive day of golf, we were having such a great time that we fought through the exhaustion and replayed the course.

What is your "home" course?
The Dub (Doubletree), San Diego, California. It would be yours too with $20 twilight.

What ball do you play?
Whatever is in my bag. I've really liked the Nike PowerSoft and Maxfli Noodle in the past, but I've recently tried the Nike One and Callaway HX. They are awe$ome!

Cobra F-speed woods, Taylor Made Rescue, Taylor Made R7XD irons, Yes! putter, and the Alien ultimate scoring wedge... anyone remember those infomercials? Classic!

Favorite pro?
Ernie Els. Like Jager... sooo smooth!

Favorite course you've played?
Mauna Kea, Kohala Coast, Hawaii

Dream course you've yet to play?
Pebble Beach

Best round ever- and what course?
86, Woods Valley, Valley Center, California

What is one aspect of your golf game you would like to improve on in the next year?
More consistent mechanics.

Tell me a story.
There once was a man from Nantucket... oh wait, that's a limerick... okay...
I just played Torrey Pines South for the first time. Now let this be a lesson to all of you... it's generally not a good idea to challenge a course that is preparing to host the next US Open. When you decide to be a hero and play the blue tees (which is recommended for 0-5 handicaps), just because you can hit the occasional 300 yard drive and have an overly inflated ego, bad things will happen. Oh yes, bad things will happen.
