My favorite tip ever: Ken Venturi, 1980s @GolfMagazine, for better chipping, pretend your arms in casts--and they put Kenny's in real casts!

Congrats @Keegan_Bradley for his 60 @hpbnc. He joins 8 others who shot 60 in Texas. Only Sam Snead, Aaron Oberholser posted 60 in Dallas

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!
Just realized that June 26th marks 20 years since I moved to the U.S. Thinking I should throw a party themed "You're Welcome America!"

So, Cruden Bay - it was as wonderful as I remember. Still my favorite course on the planet.
Bradley, Dufner and Kuchar are the featured group this morning at the Byron Nelson. Track their scores here bit.ly/11EBGrJ
This morning I'll see Cruden again, and I'm a wee nervous. It's like being reunited with an old flame - is she as fetching as I remember?
Sixteen years ago I went 36 at Cruden Bay. It blew my mind. Ever since I've been calling it my favorite course in the world....

There are courses & there are experiences. Old Course/Muirfield are amazing exps. But for 18 holes of drama/excitement I'll take Kingsbarns
First tee at Kingsbarns. It's 44 degrees. We left the Dunvegan seven and a half hours ago. You gotta want it.
Even cooler Hal trivia: he copyrighted "Be the right club today!" Remember that next time you holler said phrase during your Sunday fourball
Cool Hal trivia: he was the first Tour pro to earn a six-figure winner's check ('83 Players) & a seven-figure winner's check (2000 Players)
Spent some highly entertaining time with Hal Sutton today. Can report he still has great hair and considerable fire in his belly.
