age 26 lives Dal­las story Mem­ber of 2012 NCAA-cham­pion Texas Longhorns; won 2016 San­der­son Farms Cham­pi­onship. hard worker Af­ter fresh­man year I was burned out on play­ing golf, so I worked at Brook Hol­low Golf Club mow­ing fair­ways and cut­ting cups.

It’s some­thing I get chills just talk­ing about now. I can’t see how that can ever be beat. FAIR­WAY WOOD specs Call­away GBB Epic Sub Zero, 13.8˚, Fu­jikura Pro 73x TS X-flex, 42⅝ inches, D-3.5 swing­weight I re­cently changed to the Sub Zero model.

WEDGES specs Call­away MD3 (46˚); Nike En­gage (53˚); Call­away MD3 Milled (59˚), True Tem­per Dy­namic Gold S400 shafts I’ve bent my pitch­ing wedge from 48 to 46 de­grees.

I love get­ting away from the course to do some fish­ing. I caught this six-pounder in April on a small lake in east Texas. In the off­sea­son, I’m ei­ther hunt­ing or catch­ing red fish and speck­led trout. Lone Star proud I’m not su­per­sti­tious, but I like my Univer­sity of Texas coins. They have a nice weight. I also use Texas quar­ters. I like get­ting those in change.
