What His Friends Have To Say About Larry Mize:

Curtis Strange, 2-time U.S. Open Champion

"Larry still had the world in front of him when he won at Augusta. You never know how winning the Masters will affect someone. He had a wonderful game and a terrific short game. I think he probably didn't fulfill what a lot of us thought he might be, but you never know. He's a better man than he is a player."

Scott Simpson, U.S. Open Champion

"Larry's just a really nice guy. He lives his Christian faith. You can see him live it -- he's not a phony in any sense. He always does everything the right way, not only in golf but in life."
