Pete Phipps isn’t sure he’d want to do it again. But he’s sure glad he did it. “It” being the epic golf and bike trip that he and his buddy Luke Davis recently completed, a two-week, 800-mile pedal-and-peg it from Southern Oregon to Monterey, Calif., along scenic Highway 1.
For the most part, the course bludgeoned me -- and just about everyone else, too. I four-putted once, lost six balls in fescue, two more in marshland and one that I snapped into a remote maintenance pond, a noteworthy achievement when you consider that Erin Hills does not technically have a water hazard.
