Augusta is a very unique golf course. It’s a long hitters’ course; main reason is because the greens are so severe, and the areas where they put the pin is such a small area. The little plateaus and undulations mean it’s incredibly important to be close to that pin so you can be aggressive.

We give speeches and pin ribbons onto uniforms, etch names into walls. And all that is fine, but too often, all those tributes, all those words aren’t always backed up by action. And that felt like such a stark contrast to me, because, as we all know, our military is all about action.
