Rod Spittle posted his breakout victory when he defeated Jeff Sluman in a one-hole playoff in the final full-field event of the 2011 season at the AT&T Championship. A long-time amateur competitor, Spittle turned professional in 2004. A college teammate of Joey Sindelar and John Cook at Ohio State, the Canadian native has a pair of Canadian Amateur titles on his career resume. Champions Tour media official Dave Senko recently sat down with Spittle to get his thoughts on a number of different topics.
