Years with EMP:
What is the title of the best book you have ever read? Why is it the “best?”
Wooden by John Wooden. I try to read it once a year to remind of the things that are important to living a successful life.
If they made a movie of your life, what genre would it be (comedy, drama, etc.) and who would be cast in the lead?
Comedy; Kurt Russell
If you could travel back in time and meet yourself as a 10-year-old, what advice would you give yourself?
Spend more time really listening to the advice of my parents, teachers and coaches...they knew what they were talking about.
If you could be on a reality TV show, which one would it be? Why?
The Big Break; If I could win The Big Break then I could play golf full-time!
If you could ask one question to one person, what would that be and to whom?
Phil Mickelson...2006 US Open at Winged Foot on the 72nd hole. Why couldn’t you have just taken the 3-wood off the tee and made par to win? I remember feeling nauseated when he made double-bogey on the last hole to lose by one stroke to Geoff Ogilvy.
