Kim Up Close:
Favorite golf course: Bethpage Red.
If you could only use only one club to play a whole round? Probably my sand wedge. But with just one club, it wouldn't be so interesting.
Most reliable club: My putter. It never lets me down.
Pre-shot rituals: Practice swing. Step back, take a deep breath, set up, then swing. It's a lot faster than it sounds.
Favorite part of being on the team: My teammates.
