What's your favorite club? The one in my hand.

What club do you dread pulling out of your bag? Flop shot from a tight Bandon Dunes lie.

What specific shot do you feel most comfortable over? The bump and run from 80 + yards with either a putter or a hybrid.

What was the most memorable shot you have ever hit? 9th hole at Bandon Dunes, par 5 I hit my drive into the face of the fairway bunker over 250 yards from the green.  The wind was behind me at 35+.  I hit a hybrid literally straight up in the air and the wind took the ball all the way to the green.  I must have hit it over 200 yards straight up and the first bounce was at least 20 yards high.  I was able to reach the green and two putt for my birdie.

It is either that one or the smoked 3 wood into the fan at 16 at Cypress to 15 feet and lipped out for birdie…
