What Tour Pros Think About ... Post-round drinks, golf resorts and how to hit more greens Paul Casey Hero stuff: Eight wins on the European Tour What's the key to hitting more greens in regulation? Distance control. Amateurs don't know how far the ball goes with every club and miss short or long, while pros miss left or right. What beverage do you drink following a round? Usually just water, or maybe a sports drink like Amino Vital or a protein drink. Really anything that picks me up. What's your favorite golf resort? Turnberry, where the Open's going next year. I love the golf course. And the hotel's pucker. You don't know "pucker"? "Pucker" is like "sweet."

Stuart Appleby Hero stuff: 26th in the World Ranking What's the key to hitting more greens in regulation? Easy — hitting more fairways. It's one of the simplest formulas in golf, whether you're a Tour pro or an amateur: More fairways equals more greens. What beverage do you drink following a round? If I'm practicing at home, a beer. I have some Australian beer at home, anything but Fosters. On Tour, a Coke — regular Coke, none of that weak stuff. What's your favorite golf resort? The Hyatt Coolum in Queensland. I won there in 1998 and have had a good time there with the family. The course is American-style.

Fred Funk Hero stuff: More than $20 million in career earnings What's the key to hitting more greens in regulation? Most amateurs take a club they absolutely have to max out, and then they wind up missing short. You're better off taking one more club than you think you'll need. What beverage do you drink following a round? Ice cold beer. Light beer, actually. There's nothing more refreshing after a long, hot day on the golf course. What's your favorite golf resort? Hualalai on Hawaii's Big Island. The rooms are are beautiful, and you're really treated great. And oh, I almost forgot — I just won the MasterCard Championship there!
