DURHAM, N.C. - Senior Julian Suri of the Duke men's golf team recently sat down with to discuss highlights of his golf career. Suri owns a 73.2 stroke average, including two top-five finishes for the season. What kind of clubs do you play?
Julian Suri:
I don’t really like to change a whole lot of stuff, so most of my clubs I have had for a couple of years, which is kind of long considering they always come out with new stuff every six to eight months or so. I play a VR_S Nike driver and three-wood, Nike irons, VR Pro Nike wedges and a Scotty Cameron putter. What kind of pre-round superstitions do you have before tournaments?
I always eat a lot when I am on the course to stay energized. I have an action figure that I keep in my bag, the Silver Surfer. It stems back to when I played in a junior tournament and I went to Burger King before I played, so I have had it for five years now. Is there a shot that sticks out in your mind that you have hit under pressure?
Not especially. Each shot is just as important as the next. Ideally, you like to put yourself under the same sort of pressure with every shot you hit. How many hole-in-ones have you hit?
Five. My last one was my freshman year at a tournament in California. I was playing with a teammate, which is pretty unique. I hit a six-iron, on a hole that was around 200 yards and was a little downhill. I made it and I threw the club up in the air. It was pretty cool, because my teammate was there and our assistant coach was there at the time. What is your go to shot?
I would just say a punch shot. I like to hit a fade; I am pretty comfortable keeping the ball low and knocking it down. What is your favorite club?
I don’t have a favorite, they are all my favorites. They are like my babies, like my kids. You can’t pick a favorite. You have to use them, you have to love them. Do you have a ball mark with any special significance?
I try to mark my ball with a quarter, but if I don’t have one I just use a nickel. It’s not a big deal to me
