First played golf on Easter Sunday in 1978, and 18 years later, won BellSouth Classic on Easter.
Uncertain he would return to Masters, so bought souvenir glass, filled it with bunker sand and placed tee and ball inside as remembrance of first visit to Augusta National in 1996. Returned in 1997 and 1998.
Underwent LASIK surgery in September 1998.
Did some work as a guest analyst for Golf Channel and Sirius/XM Radio's PGA TOUR Network in 2005.
Cites winning BellSouth Classic as his biggest thrill in golf. Cites being a dad as his biggest thrill outside of golf. Favorite course played is Pebble Beach. Would most like to play St. Andrews. Never travels without his airplane ticket. Favorite college team is the University of Alabama. Favorite TV show is "The Unit." Favorite movie is "Tommy Boy." Favorite book is the Holy Bible. Favorite city to visit is New York. Would round out his dream foursome with his dad, brother, Tom, and Jesus Christ.
