When I'm out practicing at home,
00:07
when I'm just trying to have some fun
00:08
and learn different shots.
00:10
I mean this to me growing up is how I learned
00:12
to play golf.
00:13
My dad would be teaching all day
00:15
and I'd just get endless bags of balls
00:18
and I just would be out there hitting shots
00:20
and you know as a kid, it's fun to be able
00:21
to step up there and do that or, you know,
00:24
even really get one curve and you get a win like this
00:28
and it's like well, let's just see
00:29
how much I can curve this thing, so.
00:31
You know I can aim way right and get this thing
00:34
to curve a good 50, 60 yards.
00:36

00:42
Something like that, you know.
00:43
Every once in a while, I've been known
00:44
to hit a bad drive behind a tree,
00:46
so sometimes I have to hit a little curve like that,
00:49
but it's just, you know, it's fun
00:50
and this to me is like I said how I kind of learned
00:53
to hit shots and you know I don't necessarily do this.
00:56
Guys like Bubba do this in the middle of his round.

01:09
You know, it's fun to just hit different shots
01:10
on the range and you never know what you might learn,
01:13
you know, so when I'm out here hitting balls
01:15
and warming up, I'm trying to just hit different shots,
01:18
a little high cut, draw and try to have some fun with it.
