First out of the gate, just let us see you hit a putt. I want to ask you a couple of questions. What I notice when, you know, I watch you guys all the time, you have what I call a real pretty right-hand grip. You're cross-handed but you don't look cross-handed.

I'm a right-handed man. And so I think, for me.

You throw, you write--

I throw-- everything is right-handed except golf. So for me, my right hand is just there for a ride along.

So your right hand is not doing anything.

Nothing. I like to drive the putt with kind of this elbow attached into my body, and this hand is what controls the stroke. And, in fact, I practice a lot with just that hand.

Which in my case, would be-- yeah, OK.

So this hand, I just put this hand wherever it's comfortable. I mean, and it probably changes throughout the year of wherever's comfortable.

It does?

I don't even--

Micro alignments.

Yeah. It does not matter where that hand is. I mean, it could be that or that. I mean, it doesn't matter, for me.
