I like teeing the ball down, generally.
00:08
If I wanna hit this ball up,
00:10
tee the ball up a little higher.
00:14
Moving up in my stance maybe about a half a ball,
00:17
and I'm really committed to staying back behind the
00:21
golf ball to send it.
00:23
And so what I like to try and feel is if I really, really
00:26
stand on this right leg, and really stand on it,
00:29
put all the weight driving in the ground,
00:32
and trying, basically, hit up on it as much as I can,
00:37
not try and get ahead of [mumbles] like I do for a cut.

Well, hitting the ball as far as I did was a huge advantage.
01:04
You know, theoretically,
01:05
I felt like I had a couple shots per round up on the field,
01:09
I was able to drive it well.
01:10
The game has evolved.
01:12
It's not about the precision short player
01:15
having dominant runs.
01:17
It's about the power players.
