"As a golfer, the item that best represents me is my putter. It has a breast cancer grip, representing the soft spot I have for people who suffer from the illness. The putter head also has a red insert. My putting can be on fire sometimes, and I can also get fired up and crazy. Putting is a rhythmic, easy going and gentle stroke. I am an easy going, kind and gentle person."
