Kids V Cancer

Shriners Hospitals for Children
FUNDRAISING

Since I won in 2015, I’ve had several opportunities to interact with patients from Shriners Hospitals for Children.  Perhaps my most memorable moments have come with Darien Johnson from Shreveport.  Not only did Darien walk inside the ropes with me during my win, but we got together the following April for a day at TPC New Orleans – where Darien beat me in a putting contest!  He’s one of the coolest kids I’ve ever met and I’m looking forward to meeting more patients this year, all while doing my part to help raise funds for this incredible organization.

Marker

A Ready Reminder

I caddied for a friend in the 2013 U.S. Amateur and bought this ball marker/divot tool. It’s a reminder that it’s better to be playing than caddieing.

Fairway Wood

Titleist 915Fd

15˚, 43 inches, Mitsubishi Kuro Kage XM70 shaft, X-flex, D-3 swingweight. This is a hot club. Very much a second driver for me, except I can hit a bigger variety of shots. I can also get to par 5s from a long way out.

Irons

Srixon Irons

Srixon Z U45, 3- through 4-iron; Srixon Z-745 5- through 9-irons, True Temper Dynamic Gold X100 shafts, D-3.5 swingweight, Golf Pride Tour Velvet 58 grips. The utility irons give me a lower flight than hybrids. The soles on my irons are special. The way they plow through the turf is incredible.

Wedges

Cleveland Wedges

Cleveland 588 RTX 2.0 (48˚), True Temper Dynamic Gold X100 shaft; Cleveland 588 RTX 2.0 (52˚, 58˚, 62˚), True Temper Dynamic Gold S400 shafts. I’ve used Cleveland wedges since I started playing. The 62-degree is a real weapon around the green. The 52 has higher bounce that helps on chips that need more run.

Putter

Scotty Cameron

by Titleist Newport 2 T10, 35 inches, 4˚ loft, 72˚ lie, Winn Dri-Tac putter grip. I’ve been using this putter for eight years. I love the look, especially the topline. For some reason it always lines me up to hit it on the center.

Some Like It Tough

The Srixon Z Star XV has a soft feel, but it’s really durable, too. It’s great in the wind. Some balls turn hard, but this holds its line.
