CHANGE IS GOOD
Cosmetics are important. That's why I've always played traditional-looking golf clubs. Before I made the switch to TaylorMade this year, I went to the company's test center in December and hit balls to find out which clubs I liked. At our level, it can't be about the money. It has to be about the quality of the company's technology.
KNEE KNOCKERS
The most intimidating hole on the PGA Tour is the par-3 12th at Augusta National. It's a small target, and the winds are usually swirling. When you consider a green jacket might be on the line, a lot comes into play for that shot.
VARIETY IS THE SPICE OF GOLF
If I could play only one course for the rest of my life, I don't think I'd bother to continue playing. The fact that we don't play on a standardized field is one of the most unusual aspects of our sport. I really enjoy playing different types of courses that require different types of shots
GIVING BACK
I started the David Toms Foundation in January 2003. So far we've given more than $3 million to charities, including $1.6 million in Katrina relief. If we can get a family off the street, get a child away from an abusive home or learning life skills, then we're creating hope and making a difference in the community.
