Temper Dynamic Gold S400 shafts
Two years ago I realised
I needed a 110-metre club after
my caddie at the time (Anthony
Knight) recommended it.
So I added a gap wedge and
took out my 3-iron. It’s been
a great move.
lives Arizona, USA
story The four-time
US PGA Tour winner
won the Barbasol
Championship in a
playoff last year.
a win for the kids
It’s so much more
special to win now
that my children are
old enough to under-
stand it. My father-in-
law DVRed the win,
and my son Jeremiah
will always ask us to
re-watch it. So cool.
As a junior golfer, I
learned how to save
money. I’d save things
as small as tees, even
half tees, like the one
you see in the photo
to the right. I went
an entire tournament
without breaking a
tee once. At the time,
that was a big win.

the toe); Ping G (18̊, 42 inches, D-3+).
Mitsubishi Diamana D+ 90 TX shafts
(3-wood: tipped an inch, 5-wood:
tipped 11⁄2 inches)
I have two 3-woods (Ping G, Ping G
Stretch) that I’ll switch depending
on the course. I’ll swap in a 2-iron
for a firm-and-fast course.

like a little forgiveness
on slight mis-hits. These
iBlades are quite consistent
even when you just miss it.

loft, 20̊ lie angle, 351⁄8 inches
Living close to Ping’s
headquarters in Phoenix
has its perks. Before
heading home to Australia
this past summer, I made a
6am stop before my flight
so the reps there could
check my specs.
One lucky guy You should
see Richelle and me
travelling each week on tour.

8 with everyone’s luggage.
My wife is my rock, and I
couldn’t do this without her.
specs Ping G LS Tec,
Diamana White D+ 80 TX
shaft, 441⁄4 inches, D -4
I have three clubheads
with varying amounts of
heel weight (four grams,
two grams and zero
grams). Whichever one
feels the best that week
will stay in the bag.
Family letters On my bag are
the initials of our four children:
Jolee, Jewell, Jeremiah and
Josiah. We’re having a fifth next
year! It’s a great reminder of
how for tunate we are.
Always check your marks
As an amateur in 1998, I was playing
in my first event in the US, and my
playing competitor had the same
mark as me (three dots). So I’ve used
two dots ever since.

Australian pride I’ve had a koala bear
headcover for the longest time. I also keep a
Geelong Cats (my Aussie Rules football team)
coin in my bag, a nice ode to home.
