What is your best golf memory?

Wow, I have had so many great times playing golf as a junior, college, some Hogan and Nike tour events, then as a PGA professional, it is hard to pick just one memory. I have had the pleasure of playing golf and meeting so many great people because of this game. I used to derive pleasure by just being at the course early in the morning when the grass was freshly cut and that smell. Playing with the best players at the club when I was a junior and beating them out of money. Now, I get the most pleasure when I see the juniors I teach reach new goals and my daughter take up this great game.
