Life's not always going to be bells and whistles.
People probably growing up said U.S. Open wouldn't suit me, because I'm a long hitter, I'm a bomber.
I love to be at Topeka Country Club. It's where I grew up. That's one course I'd play every day.
I can hit a lot of drivers, be aggressive, and attack from the fairway.
If I'm not driving the golf ball, now I can rely on something else to really get me through. It took me a while to get my game to that position, but I feel like I'm comfortable doing that now.
Adrenaline is a huge deal. All of a sudden you start hitting the golf ball a little bit farther. You learn to stay within yourself and what you have to do to calm yourself down and stay within your game plan.
I love Quail Hollow. I think it's one of the big boy golf courses we play. I just don't think there's really a bad hole on it.
It was hard growing up because there was nothing close. I never went to a golf tournament.
My grandfather was in the military, and I've been part of the Folds of Honor Foundation since 2009, so having the opportunity to wear Puma's Volition America collection is the perfect fit for me.
And the question about if I ever dreamed of making the putt on the last hole of a U.S. Open when I was a kid, no, I didn't. But I hit a lot of game-winning shots on the basketball court when I was a kid.
When I got hurt and had surgery on my left shoulder, my arm was in a sling for over a month but I could play Ping-Pong right-handed. I started playing and got addicted.
