The Honors Course
Ooltewah, Tenn.
Crooked Stick
Carmel, Ind.

They're both Pete Dye specials, and they're both all golf. The Honors is built for amateur golf; Tiger won the NCAA there in 1996, and he still says it's one of the hardest courses he's ever played. Gene the bartender helps with the barbecue, and Bert the locker room guy tells great stories.

I play Crooked Stick more since it's only 10 minutes from my house. Sometimes you'll be playing and the next thing you know you'll see Pete Dye out there walking his dog. It's pretty neat to know that in 1964 this was his first well-known course.

Peyton Manning is the quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts.
