Q: What's the best part of your game?
A: Best part of my game is my short game - wedges, chipping and putting.
Q: How often do you practice?
A: As much as my TV announcing schedule, body and heat in AZ will allow!
Q: How did you feel when you won your first professional tournament?
A: My first pro event I won was a mini tour event (WPGT) in San Antonio TX in 1981.....was a very thrilling and satisfying feeling to know that I could do this professional golf thing, after coming over from Australia only a few months earlier.
Q: What do you like most about The Legends Tour?
A: I am so excited about The Legends Tour....as one of the founders it is so gratifying to see it come to fruition, and hopefully become a force in the world of professional golf. It is also wonderful to be able to play with my long time friends of many years ago, who have retired from the LPGA Tour, but who love the game of golf and feel the competitive spirit still!
