DREAM STARTI couldn't have scripted my first two seasons on the PGA Tour much better. I won nearly $2 million as a rookie in 2011, which I still find hard to believe, then got another win in 2012. Not a lot of players can say they've done that. It's humbling. There's a lot to be said for having constant accountability for yourself out here. I try to make some area of my life better every day.

TALES FROM AUGUSTAI played in the Masters for the first time in 2012, but before that, I had played Augusta National a dozen times. I'll never forget my first-ever round at Augusta. Standing on the first tee, about to hit my first shot, I heard someone walking over. It was Arnold Palmer. He goes, "All right, son, let's see what you've got." I hammered it right down the middle. He gave me his legendary thumbs up.

MINI FLAGPOLESI'm originally from the New England area -- which is why I'm a Boston sports fan -- but I now call Tennessee my home. You can see the state flag on my tees.

BABY ON THE WAYThe Titleist guys added a special message on my 56-degree wedge: Baby Makes 3. My wife, Jennifer, is expecting our first baby (a boy), and we couldn't be more excited to begin life as a family.

THE NEWEST BALLI draw a yellow line on the sides of my 2013 Titleist Pro V1x prototype. I began using it in October, the first week it came out. My bag also used to have a baseball I caught at Fenway Park that Jacoby Ellsbury hit.

PASTOR'S FAITHI'm lucky to have a great supporting cast. And my local pastor is a huge influence, too. He doesn't know anything about golf, but he gave me this Bible verse to remind me how fortunate I am.

__ A TOKEN METHOD__This unusual-looking range token is what I use to mark my ball. I was with Brad Rose, my swing coach, at an event when I needed a marker. He threw me this. Then I won at The Greenbrier, so I've kept using it ever since. Am I superstitious? If it works.

DRIVERMy driver cracked the week before the PGA Championship, so I tried out the Titleist 913D2 (8.5 degrees, 43¾ inches, Mitsubishi Rayon White Board Plus 72 X-flex), and I've kept it in play.

FAIRWAY WOODI switched to the new Titleist 913F-d 3-wood (Mitsubishi Rayon White Board Plus 82) in Las Vegas. I never thought I'd get rid of my 909 model, but once I tested this 3-wood, I realized it's even better. This and all my other clubs have Iomic grips.

IRONSI play a Mizuno Fli-Hi 2-iron (Mitsubishi Rayon Kuro Kage, X-flex), but I've been testing Titleist's 712U utility. When I won in July, the 2-iron was my go-to club. My 4- through 9-irons are Titleist AP2s.

WEDGESWhen I got on tour, the Titleist reps encouraged me to switch from carrying three wedges to four. I now recognize it's the ideal makeup. I had always lacked a 105-yard club into the wind, but I've filled all my gaps now. I carry Titleist Vokey Designs for my 48-, 52-, 56- and 60-degree wedges.
