What are some of your pre-round routines or traditions?

C: John D. Rockefeller. I am just so fascinated with those guys that were entrepreneurs.

What is the best family vacation you have ever taken and why?

Aside from golf, what's your favorite sport to watch? What is your favorite team and player?

What was the last book you read and was it for school or for fun?

C: I read Pride and Prejudice.It was about a mom trying to marry off her daughters. It definitely was not a book I read for fun.
