Here comes Cannon.

Dog.

And what kind of driver have you been in your career? Are you a good driver?

I'm getting better at driving the ball. When I was younger, when I was in collagen, and out of college.

Fire but--

But as a young pro, yeah, I was just hit or miss. I'd have a 65, and then a 74. It was all off the tee.

Off the tee.

So of the more I've worked with Randy Meyers, and the more I've just gotten more control of my body, and more control of what I'm doing, the golf balls followed suit. I'm still streaky. I'm definitely-- I have a lot of room for improvement. But I'm already headed in that direction, and creeping up on it pretty quickly.

So with the driver, we're looking for a nice sweep. I've always been a little bit of a down guy. But I have enjoyed getting a little bit more sweep, a little bit flatter strike. And looking for that left-right ball flight. Some of the best advice I ever had is say you have a 60-yard wide fairway if aim down the middle--

You're playing two 30s.

You're playing two 30 sides. And if you're aiming down the middle, you don't know which way you curve the ball.

Down that left there, you got 55 yards to work with.

You play down the left side, you have 55 yards of room for your ball.

That's Jimmy DeMaret right there. Yeah. Hogan.

I've tried aiming down the middle and making a golf swing.

Yeah, that stuff--

Didn't work.

That's no good. So whatever your shot shape is, looking down that--

Use the whole-- the whole hole.

Use the whole fairway.

Yeah, exactly.

That's, I mean, that's so key to golf. And having that one miss.

If you miss it, you miss it over that way.

Yeah. Just creeps into that side, and you're OK.

So I'm going to start down this left side, and had a little fade.

I don't think there's going to be anything little about anything.

The patience is key.

That's pretty.

That's as good as I got.
