GTK: Rocco Mediate’s Fav iTunes Song, Dream Foursome, Hidden Talent

Rocco Mediate, the reigning Senior PGA Champ, sat down with the PGA Tour media for one of those quick ‘Get to Know’ type segments, as part of promotions for the Bass Pro Legends (the best Champions Tour event on the schedule).

Mediate, a six-time winner on the PGA Tour, but who is probably best known for losing to Tiger Woods at the 2008 U.S. Open, was given seven questions, including his dream foursome, his favorite golf course, and his most-played iTunes song. (Spoiler alert: Q & As below.)


1. Favorite thing about being a pro tour golfer?

The competition… playing against the guys, playing against the golf course… getting ready to go and seeing what you got.

2. Hidden talent?

Exceptional air guitarist.

3. Dream foursome?

Dad, Gene Sarazen, Walter Hagen, and tag team of Ben Hogan and Bobby Jones.

4. Favorite golf course

Riviera Country Club… for tournament play… by far.

5. Best advice?

Arnold Palmer’s advice – always look people in the eye when you speak to them, and give them something back… don’t ever look down.

6. Most-played iTunes song?

Rush’s 2112

7. Philosophy?

Aim and shoot, on the course and in life.
