Started playing golf at age 8.
Played football and basketball in high school, but enjoyed practicing golf more than other sports.
Was attacked by killer bees on the driving range prior to his third round at the 1996 Nortel Open and was stung between 10 and 15 times. His caddie, Artie Granfield, was stung between 50 and 100 times.
Began using the long putter in 1988 while coaching at the University of Houston.
Has done some golf course design work on the side.
Did soap commericals on television in the 1980s.
One of his superstitions is getting rid of anything negative. If he makes a double bogey, he changes to a new ball. If he plays poorly, he won't wear the same outfit, but if he plays well he can't wait to wear the same shirt again.
Enjoys attending Broadway shows.
Enjoys working in his yard, trying different wines and spending time with his grandson, Keegan.
His first car was a maroon 1966 Mustang.
