#fbf 2015 when I played Sunningdale the week of @europeantour's PGA Championship at Wentworth. Hope I get the opportunity again next week! It's in my top 10 faves, maybe top 5.

I regret that I didn't have the time during a tournament round, like Saturday, to spend a few hours camped out by the 17th green. I'm sure there would've been no shortage of great material to write/share.
And if I were a fan...wait, just taking a second to try and imagine hanging out with my friends and boozing here all day. Hahahahahaha. Honestly, even when I move on from the industry and/or the media, can't see myself ever going to a tourney "for fun." Maybe in like 20 years if I have kids or something. It's hard to explain, but I think some of you guys can relate and/or know what I mean.

#fbf 2015 at St George's Hill during the week of Wentworth. Already looking forward to trip back in about 9 days! When we teeing it up @roseanneniven @cat_paterson ?!? #girlswhogolf #singledigits #england #stgeorgeshill #wentworth #propergolf

This was indeed impressive to witness. But didn't you throw it to like 2 feet a few years back? Maybe more like 4-5 years ago?

#tbt 2012 miracle at Medinah--for his singles match, Rory McIlroy famously almost missed his tee time, but his now wife Erica Stoll, who was working for the PGA of America, saved the day and organized a police escort for him to make it for his singles match with like 2 minutes to spare! Happy Birthday to one of the real good guys, @rorymcilroy! πŸŽ‰πŸΎπŸŽŠπŸŽπŸŽˆπŸ‘Šβ›³οΈ#2012rydercup #celebration #miracleatmedinah #rorymcilroy #birthday

#tbt that time I played Erin Hills, this year's U.S. Open venue, during the 2010 PGA Championship. I loved it--possibly because I played really well. There were some lengthy walks between holes and I could see potential for issues w/massive galleries, but I don't remember details well enough and it was almost SEVEN years ago, so I'm sure the course looks different than when I played it and necessary changes made to accommodate hosting the major. β›³οΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸŒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ’š #usopen #pgachamp #erinhills #golf (πŸ“· @allanhenry )

Happy National Golf Day! Throwing it back to the one & only time I've played Bethpage Black (which is almost criminal considering how close I live). Here I am teeing off the beastly and difficult 15th (no 1 handicap hole) in November 2013. (πŸ“· @mcaltobello)

Had the pleasure of playing Tamarack CC in Greenwich, CT, for the first time last Saturday (opening day for the season, I believe, after what's been the crappiest "spring" I've experienced in NYC in 12 years -- though I managed to avoid as much of it as possible! What a delight! It was my first time, but had heard wonderful things, and I mean, it was designed by golf architect and fellow #Yalie Charles Banks, who was mentored by #CBMacDonald and #SethRaynor. I hear those two names and chances are very high that I'll be a huge fan. #Tamarack didn't disappoint. And check out the video at the end for the enormous Biarritz green--longest in the world?!? I've seen quite a few and it certainly is in my book, but I am by no means a design guru. In fact, up until a few years ago, I really had no interest in course design, architecture, etc. -- they all looked the same to me as a kid. I had no appreciation while I was at Yale. I was not even aware of the famous design features, like the Redan, Eden, Biarritz, Short, Road, Cape, Alps- now completely makes sense why I've always thought the 8th hole at Yale was so sneaky hard and dreaded that difficult approach shot!-and where their inspiration was drawn from, but none of my teammates did, either). I'm certainly fortunate to be making up for lost time in the last 7 years, though! #latergram #golfgeek #golfdesign #golfhistory #yale #hiddengems

Always love popping by Paramount CC just to see a few of my favorite people @sscottpga & Brian Chapin! Bonus is getting to play a great and fun track! I even managed to put up with @eamonlynch -- who had mini-lessons before *and* after from best in biz @sscottpga-- for the entire day. It's handy that he has a car. (Eamon was generous enough to lend me Steve for a few min to help me work through my legit case of bunker yips! Finally clicked! Thanks, Steve! You're the best!) @paramountcc_ny
