Favorite Golf Memory:  “Being chased by a kimono dragon in Indonesia. We were playing a newly developed golf course there, and my buddy was driving the cart. He didn’t notice this dragon coming towards my side of the cart. So I jumped across his lap, my buddy floored it and I held on to the side of the cart, because by then he was going faster than I wanted to run. We got away from it, but it was scary – those things are huge!”
