\n"I spend most of my time on the golf course. I love betting. To get real action on the course you have to make your opponent think he has the edge, then turn the tables. Rocco Mediate said that if he had to pick someone to make a putt for $1 million, he'd choose me. That's because I have made a putt for a million. Of course, the first time I had a putt for a million, I choked. After a few times it's just another putt. A hustling secret? If your opponent has a little choke in him, get him to play on the fastest greens you can. Bets always come down to a putt."
