A member of the St. Bonaventure University Athletics Hall of Fame, Josh Anderson said he’s playing “as good as I was in college.” That was evident when the 40-year-old from Sidney dominated this month’s Danville Country Club Open, winning the championship flight by 7 strokes.

That’s two in a row for Anderson at his home course. A dominant force on the area scene, he’ll try to win the UI Open again this weekend (we’ll publish tee times later this week).

I’m rooting for … the Illini.

Mike Small is … the greatest college coach ever. What he’s done for 20 years is amazing.

Favorite course: Caledonia Golf & Fish Club in South Carolina. It’s an experience, a lot like Augusta (National Golf Club).

Dream foursome: Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Sam Snead.

Favorite club: 8-iron.

Longest drive: 410 yards. It was in Colorado but still counts.

Order on the 19th hole: Vodka and soda.

Favorite golf movie: Caddyshack.
