Northern has used his father, a Tennessee postal clerk with a do-it-yourself attitude, as a model to set the bar uncommonly high for himself. A natural-born rightie, Northern uses his left hand for most everything. His car has a standard transmission; automatic is too easy. On the golf course, he uses old-fashioned blades-style clubs rather than cavity-backs — the golfing equivalent of opting for long, straight skis over shaped ones.
