  1. David, I met you at the 2019 Founders Cup in Phoenix. I was standard bearer for you and JY on Saturday and then joined your group on Sunday for the win! I vacationed in York and spent a very cold New Years eve there.
    Question-I am now caddying for two players on Arizona mini-tours and would love to discuss how you and JY prep for courses. This came about because my previous golf instructor new I was playing competitively, level headed and had the interest in caddying.
