Favorite golf memory: I was with my daughter at a Senior event, she was only about 10 or 11. We were standing at the tee and “Mr. 59” Al Geiberger teed off. Right after he teed off, he picked up his tee and handed it to my daughter.

Nicest golf course ever played: Timberstone in Iron Mountain

Favorite pro golfer. Why?: Paul Goydos. He’s always near the top, and I like his demeanor and how he deals with the media.

Golf tip to share: I’m just learning the flop shot. Play the ball off of your front foot. The palm of your right hand should be up, and slide your club under the ball.
