• Favorite story you’ve written: By far, as almost a rookie, I worked my way into the funeral of MLB Hall of Famer Eddie Matthews. No other media outlet was allowed in, but his widow granted me access at a distance. As the funeral finished up, I was able to approach family and friends. Every media outlet picked up my story.
• Favorite golf memory: Any round with my grandfather.
• Best round: Two months ago, I broke 80 for the first time, shooting 79 with a sandsave on No. 18.
• Dream foursome:Tiger, grandfather, myself, father-in-law
