  • For those that love really great modern golf designs, this week will be a treat. Trinity Forest will be hosting the AT&T Byron Nelson for the first time, a Coore-Crenshaw design that has the golf course design gurus a-gushin'. The best in the business in breaking down design, Andy Johnson, does a perfect job of explaining why you should care about this golf course in particular and what makes Trinity Forest an amazing course and great test for some of the best in the world this week. 
  • Doug Ford, the oldest living major champion, passed away on Wednesday at the age of 95. Ford won the 1955 PGA Championship and the '57 Masters by three shots over Sam Snead. Jim McCabe did a wonderful job remembering the legend. 
  • A rough situation from the weekend; Lucas Glover's wife went crazy on him after his third round, attacking him to the point where the cops were called. She then went crazy on the cops. An ugly, ugly situation.
  • Tiger has committed to the Memorial. Jack is pumped

Ep. 100 with Chris Nashawaty

If you're reading this newsletter you've probably spent a few hours on the couch over the years rewatching "Caddyshack."

If that is the case, you'll love this chat with Chris Nashawaty, author of "Caddyshack: The Making of a Hollywood Cinderella Story" that just came out late last month (you can order it on Amazon right here). 

Chris talked about how he got the idea to dive into this film, how hard it is to track down Bill Murray and just how all over the place that set was back when the film was made in 1979.

Old Golf Shots That Never Get Old
I just loved this shot from Tiger Woods back in 1997 from a drain. When in doubt, just hit the dang thing.
