When it's deep into the season and you're not playing well, it's frustrating. This is when it's time to revisit some basics.
The best part about winning the PGA is getting great pairings at tour events. It's fun to play with Phil Mickelson and other past major champions.
When I throw a softball, there's no time to think about the motion of my arm. I just look at the first baseman's glove and react.
It's such an advantage to be able to hit short irons low on command. When it's windy, you'll hit more greens. But low shots are a great strategy in calm conditions, too: The less time the ball hangs in the air, the less time it has to stray off line from the flagstick.
People look at me weird because I'm a Howard Stern fan, but he's very misunderstood. It's the first thing I do when I get in my car at a tournament - just pray that I get Howard 100 on Sirius or XM.
I was the first to win a major with a belly putter, and I've spent hours practicing that way, so I hope they don't ban anchoring.
I've always played my best golf in the summer.
Seems like my iron play gets a little better every year. Which makes sense - I've been working hard on things with my teacher, Jim McLean.
Most amateurs are so worried about mis-hitting the shot or hitting it off line, they don't make an aggressive move. You'd be surprised how much better your swing will get if you let your natural athletic ability shine. So go after it.
You can't swing with hesitation; you can't try to steer the ball to the flag; you can't worry about that water hazard as you take the club back. You have to pick the right club, visualize the shot you want to hit, and then focus on that shot until the ball is gone.
Growing up in Vermont, no matter what I did, I didn't get much recognition.
I like using a 75-percent swing for wedge shots instead of full force.
Especially in wind, each shot and stance can feel different, so it's important to first get comfortable.
I love team environments, like the Celtics, the Bruins. I love going into the locker room and meeting these guys.
I realize Tiger Woods is Tiger Woods; he's intimidating.
