Tell us about your ideal woman?
Is there such a thing? No really, she’s someone very genuine, with plenty of substance. Also fun, easygoing, and makes me laugh often. I’m looking for someone who is intelligent, well traveled, and enjoyable to be around. Compatibility, chemistry, and great conversation are all imperative. Physical attraction is always a must.

Tell everyone about your first kiss…
Hahaha…….I actually missed! I was in 6th grade, totally pre-meditated on my part. We were in her drive-way, it was time for me to leave and I was real nervous to make my move. Her Mom calls her from the back porch; she must’ve gotten spooked or something because she immediately gave me the Heisman!

Who is the most beautiful person you know, inside and out?
Absolutely, with out a doubt, it’s my Mom. She has unconditionally loved her family and has this ability to see something good in everyone. She’s got this loving, and forgiving nature. Her Mother was the sweetest woman as well, but with a little more of an edge.

What three things would you need to survive on a deserted island?
A blonde, a brunette, and a deep-sea fishing rod.

What do you find to be the most annoying habit people have?
Bad manners and lack of common courtesy. It doesn’t take much to say “Thank you” or “You’re welcome”, drives me nuts.

Name the three most important things to you in this world.
My Son, my puppies, and my family.

Of the three, would you choose love, happiness or money?
Well, if I choose love, I’m vain, if I choose happiness, I’m eccentric, and if I choose money, I’m greedy. So how about peace of mind?

What is your perfect date?
What do you think about Body Sushi? 3 words: Jolie - Gulbis - Sharapova

What three people would you like to play with in your fantasy golf foursome?
Well after this year’s U.S. Open, I’ve got to include my man Rock. It’s amazing how far heart will take you. Then you throw in the greatest player on the planet; Tiger. And of course my Dad“the Chief”, who I lost 25 years ago.

Boxers or Briefs?
Well variety is the spice of life. So how ‘bout boxers, boxerbriefs and depending on the situation, you may have to go Commando. Is that too much information? Sorry!

Is there anything else we should know about you?
Yes, most importantly, please help support the following organizations: Special Olympics, The First Tee, Habitat for Humanity, PGA TOUR’s Birdies for the Brave. ……and don’t forget the puppies, SPCA “adopt a pet”.
