I put the experience at the top 3 well ahead of the others.

1. Bethpage Black - best golf experience Iíve had despite rains all day
2. Oak Hill East - classic Donald Ross course and the best conditioned course Iíve ever played
3. Kapalua Plantation - amazing views and overall feeling of being in paradise put this high on the list
4. Erin Hills - not my favorite layout but feel somewhat obligated to put it on the list. I prefer playing other courses not listed
5. St. Louis Country Club - tough decision as lots of courses could take this spot on any day, but itís a fun, very playable course, with a timeless CB Macdonald design

Driver: Callaway GBB Epic Sub Zero - 9 degree, draw setting, 12g weight forward, Fujikura Pro Green 62 X
3 wood: Callaway XR Pro 14 degree - Stock Project X 6.0
3 hybrid: Callaway XR Pro 20 degree - Stock Project X 6.0
4-pw: Bridgestone J15 DF - Project X PXI 6.0
50, 55, 60 wedges: Mizuno T4
Putter: Odyssey Works #1W
Ball: Bridgestone B330
