• Best golf shot seen live: Padraig Harrington’s “Happy Gilmore” swing that cleared the barn at the end of the Cog Hill driving range at last year's BMW Championship. After making contact, the Irishman turned around without watching his ball and climbed into his car to drive to a U2 concert.
• Believe it or not: I spent my freshman year of college as a mechanical engineering student. You can see how that worked out.
• Favorite golf course: Bull Valley GC, Woodstock, Ill.
• Dream foursome: A game of wolf between my dad, myself, Roy McAvoy and Baggar Vance.
