I got started, I think,
00:03
I think I was still wearing diapers.
00:05
My dad cut down this old Mickey Wright
00:07
seven iron.
00:09
Hi, I'm Scott Fahrney.
00:09
I'm 27 and I'm from Wayne, New Jersey.
00:12
I'm an attorney.
00:13
Jerry Maguire got me into it,
00:15
and when I first saw Jerry Maguire,
00:16
it was like, that's what I wanna do.
00:18
I wanna be an agent.
00:19
Then I realized his character went to law school
00:21
and I was like, I gotta go to law school.
00:22
From then on I was, I was almost dead set.
00:25
I was like 7th grade, I wanted to be a lawyer.
00:27
I am very focused.
00:28
I have been my whole life,
00:30
and I think that's what fascinates me about this
00:31
is the mental toughness that it would take
00:33
to actually go out and shoot 99 or better.
00:36
Get in, get in, get it in.
00:37
My USGA index is 6.3.
00:39
If it comes down to Pebble I've played it
00:41
enough times on Tiger Woods Golf, so.
00:43
Really? Wow.
00:44
Yeah, I shoot 64 there every time.
00:46
Really?
00:48
The way it would really change my life
00:49
is to bring my family back to where
00:51
I want them to be.
00:53
Over the last year it's been kind of rough,
00:55
and I think I spoke to my dad maybe three or four times.
00:58
And since I got married I just, we've lost touch.
01:01
You know, we used to play golf three days a week.
01:04
I would really like to rekindle that relationship
01:07
and get back together with him
01:08
and I'd like to have that father-son moment
01:11
near Father's Day, on Pebble Beach.
01:14
I think that might change things.
