- What do you like most about golf and being a golfer?
Burly’s Response: I like that golf is a very competitive and challenging sport. I also love the feeling of hitting a perfect golf shot and winning.
- You are 12 years old and just shot 70 to win a golf tournament. What are the strengths of your game?
Burly’s Response: My favorite shots to play (strengths) are my “baby draw” drives, short chips and making medium length putts.
- Were you nervous coming down the stretch?
Burly’s Response: No, because I didn’t know anyone else’s score.
And how did you finish so strong?
Burly’s Response: I just tried to make the best golf shot I could – one shot at a time.
- How often do you practice?
Burly’s Response: Every day I can. My mom won’t let me practice when it’s raining hard or when I have a piano lesson.
And who is your favorite golfer?
Burly’s Response: Ricky Fowler because he is not afraid to go for it and he makes clutch shots.
- You travel from Orcas Island to Blaine to see Coston. Why?
Burly’s Response: Jeff knows what it takes to be on tour and win. He is an amazing coach and has helped improve every part of my game. He is also fun and I like to bet him “push-ups” for whoever makes the better golf shot.
What types of things are you and Jeff working on?
Burly’s Response: Swinging harder – “more smoke”, visualizing all shots, best type of chip for the hole position, putting speed, 20/20 swing plane, thumping the turf at impact, and turning knuckles down through the ball.
