Favourite golf course played: Brookwater and Riverlakes a close second, haven't been a lot of places but that is going to be fixed.

Dream golf destination, or trip: Anywhere overseas. Stood on the 1st tee at St Andrews but couldn't play so probably there.

If you could pick three others, dead or alive, to play a round with, who would they be: Tiger Woods, Greg Norman, Shaquille O'Neal

If you could pick three ozgolfers to play a round with, who would they be: Don't know any of you upstanding citizens but virge was helpful and knows his shit by the looks.

Your favourite golf memory: breaking my dad's four wood head off his club at the driving range while he was trying to teach me how to hit left handed. The wood head went further than the ball. Bonus was I had my first set of right handed clubs the next week.

Can you work a draw a lot of side hill shots

14th April 2013, 08:12 PM
Natural shot is right to left. Just looked at the pictures of the course on the Internet. Looks very tight.

Peter will get you a long way down. It might not be the same fairway though.

The greens are completely different to Brisbane too.

14th April 2013, 08:24 PM
Cool. I can bang it a fair way.
