My Ultimate Foursome: Brian Gionta
MONTREAL -- Caddyshack aside, golf is a pretty serious game. But if certain Canadiens were given the chance to tee off with their dream foursome, the day would be anything but uptight. Here’s what Brian Gionta’s dream day on the links would look like.

Here’s a look at who Brian Gionta would gladly share his golf cart with if he had his choice.

1. Tiger Woods – He’s just an incredible golfer. He got such mental toughness and he’s gotten to the top and stayed there for so long, he’s just got to be at the top of my list.

2. Stewart Cink – I once had the chance to have dinner at his house. Even though he’s a star on the PGA Tour, he’s completely laid back and down to earth. It would be awesome to play a round with him.

3. Wayne Gretzky – He’s the greatest hockey player of all time and I’d love to take advantage of this day on the links to pick his brain about his philosophy and approach to the game.
 
Who would be your caddie?
My dad. He wouldn’t be the greatest person to give me golfing tips, but I’m sure he’d have a blast out there. I’ve got all the respect in the world for him and I’m sure he’d really enjoy it.
 
What would be your golf course of choice?
I would go with Oak Hill near where I live in Rochester. I know the course pretty well and I would like to see how the others would fair on it. It’s a spectacular course that has even hosted the PGA Championship before.
