My first major win, at the '81 PGA at Atlanta Athletic Club, came about 45 minutes from my home in Acworth, Ga. I have two boys who were 2 and 4 at that time, so I was well occupied when not at the course. When playing near your home you have to compete while doing all the things that you normally do when you're home. Some players don't do that well. I loved it. When I hit my second shot into the bunker by the green on 18 the last day, I knew I had won. The walk to the green, which was surrounded by stands filled with family and friends, was both fun and emotional.
