Mike has over 20 years of golfing experience, and has been rated a AAA golf professional for the last 15 years. Mike is also a multi-awarded PGA Golf Professional playing not only throughout Australasia, but also in Canada and Japan.
What are your expectations for the upcoming 2020 US Masters?
It should be amazing with Tiger Woods defending his title.
You’ve been joining the US Masters for two decades. What stands out as your most memorable experience?
It’s hard to pick just one over 20 years. There are 3 moments that really stand out for me:
- Adam Scott winning in 2013, we followed him all day, it was unreal.
- Tiger Woods’ chip shot on 16 in 2005 still gives me goosebumps as our group were all positioned right there to watch it happen.
- In my opinion, the best shot ever at The Masters was Phil Mickelson’s 6 iron from under the trees off the pine straw.
How would you compare the US Masters of the past to these more recent ones?
The atmosphere is so much better these days, it is amazing being there.
Do you have a favorite Masters tradition?
I like a lot of them but I do like that the last winner chooses the Champions Dinner menu. I also like the “no running policy.”
Any tips for first-time tournament players?
Any new players in particular to watch out for?
No, just watch Tiger!
