  1. I met Lance at the Phoenix Waste Management this year. Truly one of the nicest and most genuine guys I have met in some time. As a volunteer Standard Bearer and a new caddy into my second year on the Epson I asked Lance a question and he offered to converse after the round and then we spoke a couple times on the phone following the tournament for well over an hour. How many professional caddies would give their time like that. I am very appreciative of his time and insight.
