Paul,
thank you so much for hanging out and fielding questions.
To me, one of the most remarkable things about your game is how stoic you remain when the perfect throws aren't coming. I know that this is likely just who you are as an athlete, but do you have any actual methods for keeping the frustration out of your game?
This is a big issue for me. I find that one truly awful throw can stay lodged in my thoughts for minutes, or even hours.

I injured myself at the Kansas city wide open. I slipped on a "teepad" and fell in a hole because they were just dirt. It really affect my game, I have no stregth in my left leg which is the push off leg for everything. I had to work 5x harder to learn how to putt without that push.
I plan on being there.

I use 4 finger power grip for everything but putting.

And related to that, when you're in town for an event, do you try to hit other courses that may not be a part of the tournament, or are you there strictly for business?

If you had a limitless piece of land to drop 18 holes on, what type of course would you choose? Long and more open, wooded and technical, lots of elevation change, lots of ob.? I ask with challenge and fun factor in mind, almost as if it were the only course you'd be able to play ever again.

Thanks for being accessible, I appreciate being able to read through this thread. There was a dude who was living in my area for a while on a work assignment from the Huntington beach area and was saying like 4-5 years ago to keep an eye out for your name and you'd be the next big pro. Pretty cool how that stuff turns out.
on the round I like to only play the course I'm playing for event so it's mostly practicing the courses more than shots.

For a course I would make a TOUGH long wooded course with some open holes and lots of hazards. I would want it to make every course that much easier

I think teaching little league baseball helped me. You can't get frustrated when teaching kids so maybe try to find a league or start some free clincs to try and help out kids. It will help you out mentally. I believe thats what helped me most.
