Greatly enjoyed talking to friends of @webbsimpson1 for SI's upcoming U.S. Open preview issue. Pretty wise dude for 27. Keep an eye out.
Good news: Peter Uihlein got a W on the European tour. Even better: He got a free sleeve of Pro V1s in the deal.
Gotta admit my revelation of last 2 weeks is not Moon (who we kinda knew about) but David Lingmerth. Now if he only had Moon's putter...

Amazing setting. Some great holes. Way, way too penal. No soul. “@simonjmills79: honest opinion of your Trump experience?”
Yeah, 'twas ambitious. We ate a few lunches in the car, twice pegged it after 5 pm. “@Geraldo1888: that's amazing golf to fit into 6 days!
In this order: Cruden Bay, Old, Castle Stuart, N. Berwick, Kingsbarns, Muirfield, Dornoch, Tain, Nairn, Trump. “@cfd1974: favorite course?"
And thanks to all the Scottish characters we met along the way - we're still chuckling at many of the dry retorts. Haste ye back, indeed.
A big thanks to @PerryGolf for helping us organize this madcap trip - they are fantastic at bringing a dream itinerary to life.
If you love golf you must make the pilgrimage. Do whatever it takes, including selling a kidney. It'll change how you play/think about golf.
I'll be writing about the adventure in an upcoming Golf Magazine, but the short version is that it was an incredible experience.
Well, the great Scottish road trip is over - 10 rounds in 6 days, from North Berwick in East Lothian up to Royal Dornoch in the Highlands.

Eating lunch at Royal Dornoch watching play off the first tee. Some horrifying mental images but I'm feeling much better about my own swing!
I was told about Rory's management move at Augusta & asked Conor Ridge about it. He denied it. My source said it would happen, just wait.
Rory McIlroy is leaving Horizon Sports Management to set up his own management group bit.ly/13spYL7
Setting up his own machine is a massive distraction Rory doesn't need right now. At the very least, couldn't wait til the fall?
I'm quite surprised Rory is leaving Horizon - Conor Ridge worked slavishly for him, and made him fabulously wealthy.
What are these muscular things attached to my golf club? Oh, my arms! Short sleeves this a.m. at Nairn. Now north, to the links of Dornoch.
We didn't peg it at Castle Stuart until 5:10. At night. This course is a wonder - a non-stop thrill ride. And views!
